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
Also known as Micosynodontis sp. 1
