Squeaker catfish: Meet Synodontis ocellifer from Nigeria

This is another catfish-beauty originating from Nigeria. Someone once said that this species of Synodontis can be characterized by three adjectives: peaceful, beautiful, and hardy. In fact S. ocellifer is one of the most peaceful species of Synodontis at all. The maximum length of S. ocellifer is about 20 cm. When they get older they become more and more deep-bodied.
 
The spots on the flanks differ individually in size and number. Also the basic coloration varies from yellowish over several brownish tinges to grey. Aged fishes often get a light center in the spots of the body what makes them look especially attractive.
 
Like most members of the genus Synodontis this species is omnivorous. Plants are not eaten usually, but one should be careful that eventual tank mates are not too small. Otherwise they make be taken for food. This Synodontis should be kept in groups (from 5 specimens upwards). Water temperature should be between 22 and 28°C. Hardness and pH are almost meaningless for keeping this Squeaker; any tap water that is drinkable can be used.
 
For our customers: the fish have code 184702 on our stock list. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
