Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Ive had them in the past and i was amazed at how majestic and beautiful they were in the tank. Reminded me of the whale sharks in the ocean Mine for the first time swam to the top of the tank to get pellets when I came to feed! It normally just swims over the gravel where I am feeding so it surpris...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Re: Cave idea for a decorus

I have been online looking to purchase a clay cave but they all look to small for its adult size. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Re: Proper stocking for my aquarium?

Suddenly I feel like a bad fish parent for keeping 5 full growns in a 55gal. Mine were happy, I had plenty of hiding spaces. They were happier in the 90 gallon, sure, but I had no problems in the 55. You had 5 what Platydoras or Agamyxis in your 55 gallon? The platydoras I had were really aggressiv...

Re: Proper stocking for my aquarium?

I ended up only keeping 1 Agamyxis pectinifrons so I no longer have the 2 platydoras armalatus they were really aggressive eaters and when they were out they were really moving searching for food so I assumed when they get large they would be a handful so I decided to stick with Agamyxis pectinifron...

Re: Velvet and Platydoras armatulus suggestions?

Well I know a lot of people who keep separate all items for their own tanks if they own multiple tanks so there is no cross contamination (example each tank has it's own net and algae scrubber). So if you had it in another tank it could have been transferred over via another item and not necessarily...

Can a Raphael live with a Syno?

I currently have a Platydoras Armatulus and was wondering how would it compete for food with a Synodontis Notatus? A local pet store has 6 spot Notatus and I was considering getting one if they will be able to cohabitate with each other in a 75 gallon 4 ft by 1.5 ft. tank.
