What type of synodontis?

Post by Joey1994 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 7:41 pm

I have the unique chance to buy this fish.
It's very uncommon in my country. I found it on a craiglist type of site.

I'm thinking between synodontis petricola or synodontis lucipinnis.

I only have these pictures from te salesman

Still look very young based on what I can tell for size. I would hedge a bet toward petricola. They look a little stocky from here. Can you get some side pics?
