Details

Clown Synodontis (Synodontis decorus) are noted for the spots on the face and body and the striped pattern to the caudal fin. They will often have an elongated filament off the first dorsal fin spine. This is one of the most common and popular Synodontis.

Synodontis catfish typically require water that is well-oxygenated and has a relatively strong current. This can be achieved by using powerheads or a spray bar water return attachment on a canister filter. Provide hiding places situated in areas of heavy current for shelter.

Most Synodontis catfish are omnivores, and should be offered both meaty foods and vegetation. This can be in the form of flakes, pellets, and freeze-dried or frozen foods like bloodworms and blackworms. They are peaceful fish, and can be kept in most community aquariums. Many can tolerate a wide range of water conditions, including hard water and high pH, and can even be kept in some African cichlid aquariums.

Synodontis are, for the most part, nocturnal fish. They may become more active in the aquarium during the day over time but will come out of hiding the most during the night. A very well planted, dimly lit aquarium will encourage them to come out more often. Decorations like plants, driftwood, and rockwork are appropriate.

These catfish have strong spines in the pectoral fins and front of the dorsal fin. They can cause a painful puncture and may become entangled in nets. Use caution when handling or transporting.
