What's the correct name for this cat
« on: June 17, 2018, 09:19:18 pm »
Hi guys
I bought a pair of the cats because I was told they were dwarf synod's that's the only name I was given for them and was told I could keep them in my soft water tank. I think that they are cute and they seem to enjoy each others company as they both rush towards the front of the tank as soon as the food goes in.  Can anyone tell me their correct name please.

    I think they could be Synodontis Petricola (Lake Tanganyika) which require hard water.
    Look after your fish and the water, do regular water changes & maintenance, do your research and the hobby will be rewarding.
