The Decorated Synodontis catfish
 
The Decorated Synodontis or Synodontis decorus is a species of upside down catfish. This gentle giant can reach some twelve inches in length. It goes by a number of nicknames including the Decorus Catfish and is well suited in a larger aquarium considering its potential growth rate. This species enjoys hiding and will welcome hiding place and is known to be a peaceful catfish. It has been recorded to handle them careful out of the aquarium because their pectoral fins have serrated edges. S. decorus are omnivorous feeders and will welcome standard prepared aquarium foods including freeze dried items as well.
 
Synodontis decorus catfish or the barredtail squeaker are widespread throughout Central Africa and is listed on the IUCN red list of endangered species but assessed as least concern. S. decorus is endemic to Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of the Congo less the Luapula River system. One of the unique characteristics of this catfish is its long extension of the dorsal fin. This extension length is unusual because it extends as far back as the caudal fin which adds to its popularity in the aquarium trade. Having nocturnal attributes it’s not uncommon for the S. decorus to hide in caves, rocks and PVC tubing during the day time and they become more active during the evening. Clown squeakers are colored mostly white with black spots with white and black transverse bands in the dorsal, caudal, anal and ventral fins.
