Synodontis flavitaeniatus



Synodontis flavitaeniatus - catfish

Synodontis flavitaeniatus

This species belongs to the Family Mochocidae (naked catfishes). This is regarded one of the most beautiful Synodontis species (perhaps along with S.angelicus and S.decorus). Relatively peaceful species which can be housed with many other species including other Synodontis sp. This species is not as secretive as other Synodontis and you can regularly see it in the day once it gets acclimatized. The fish needs a shaded place to retreat or stay during the day. It will not dig or borrow as frequently as other members of its genus so it can be housed in planted aquaria. As with most Synodontis species, a gravel of fine sand is strongly recommended. It needs clean water (regular changes highly recommended) and the water parameters fall within the ones that all African cichlid keepers need. Thus, a pH of 7-8 is ideal (while anything in the 8-8.5 region is not a problem) and a GH which may anywhere in the 5-25 range (again the favorable for African Rift lake cichlids). Will slowly grow to 20 cm and is regarded as a rare species coming from Zaire.
