Relevant Information:

Imported as Microsynodontis sp. polli but is more likened to M. lamberti and this is the species we mosty see in the trade. There is some needed work to be done on this genera as identification to species can sometimes be problematic. Some of the species posses a rounded as well as a forked caudal fin which is unique to this family. Aquarium Care: not too difficult to keep as long as the water quality is kept up to a good standard. Diet: will eat most aquarium fare such as flake, tablet food and frozen bloodworm. These catfishes will rarely appear out during the day but may venture out for food in early evening. Remarks: Also known as Micosynodontis sp. 1
