and do a search for India and catfish. You might want to add small in the search. Most won't be.
A book you'd probably like to have is
"Ornamental Aquarium Fish of India"
by K. L. Tekriwal & A. A. Rao

Akysis catfish come to mind, several different species but only one or two are generally imported. They're all pretty similar, dwarf species that only grow to a couple inches max. Look something like bumblebee catfsh. I actually have one remaining, got a bunch last year thinking to breed them but sold most of them.

I got my group from an aquabid auction, but that seller doesn't have them any longer, and may be getting out of the business the last I heard.
Rachel should still have a few, here's a link to her stocklist for January: http://www.aquariacentral.com/forums...d.php?t=241624
