they don't appear to have any spots on the body. I suppose they vary from region to region.

Hi Alison,

Yes there are a few in the photogallery that look like yours http://www.scotcat.c...odus_pictus.htm one especially. I think also that age may be a factor as well which seems to be the norm in a lot of catfish families with age.

Hi Allan,
So possibly they will get more spotty with age? That is unusual - young animals are usually spottier and get less so.
I will keep an eye on them. Thanks
Alison

You are quite right in the assumption that with age a lot of young animals lose a lot of their spots, especially members of the Synodontis genus, but I am sure your pictus will either lose some of the spots that they do have or either look similar in a couple of years time.

They are great characters already so I'll try not to mind they aren't spotty... suppose that is one of the drawbacks of not seeing fish before you buy.
