The polka dot African catfish or Synodontis angelicus
is beautiful and most nocturnal species from the Congo Basin of Cameroon. They also are nicknamed the angel squeaker and this fish is known to be a digger in the aquarium. It is not uncommon for them to excavate the substrate or gravel so they may get at plants. But they will eagerly welcome prepared foods as well as live foods too as they are omnivorous feeders.
The angel squeaker is endemic to Congo Basin of Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of the Congo. Synodontis alberti catfish
are widespread throughout Central Africa and is listed on the IUCN red list of endangered species
but assessed as least concern. Their coloration is what makes them so desirable, which is a pattern of creamy white spots or polka dots as their called over a chocolate brown base color. As they age the spots may be less pronounced with the background color showing gray coloration. This species can be kept solitary or as schooling fish and does well in an aquarium with a current.
