Not seen very often but a very
nice marked Synodontis with most imported
species coming from the Gabon. Aquarium Care:
Said to be a secretive and timid species so should
be housed with non aggressive co-habitants and also
for the water to be on the acid side (below p.H. 7).
Diet: Most prepared foods and also
mosquito larvae live or frozen.
