Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Hello everyone....hope all are well. Jus found another 3 synodontis fry in another female. I was almost ready to give up on hoping to find catfish fry recently..as ive had about 3 batches of cichlid eggs without any. I am thinking that the "host" cichlids are starting to catch on to the "switcheroo"...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Well, they did it again!! Lol. Jus stripped another female Sunshine Peacock and found 5 syno eggs...3 days later i have 2 survivors. I do think i will have to cull one, as it looks to have a deformity. The first fry i got are now getting big and eating everything in sight. I will post pics soon as i...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Good news- I have not lost anymore of the fry, still have 3 alive and well. They are definitely growing and eating baby brine shrimp and the fry food made by Hikari. Crazy how much faster the catfish fry grow then the aulonocara fry of the host cichlid. I hope that the catfish continue to breed now ...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

@Mrsomethingfishy, did you see this recent scientific report on grandiops? Natural brood hosts for Synodontis multipunctatus and Synodontis grandiops I don't know that there's anything useful in it for you, but cool to see more attention given the genus in the scientific literature. Cheers, Eric Th...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Yes. Theres only grandiops in the tank, and the peacocks. I have about 7 lucipinnis in another tank. I watched my dominant male sunshine spawning with one of his females...the syno's kept charging in. I watched the whole thing and didnt even catch the "switch" lol.

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Your petricola are of course lucipinnis. I used piles of river rock which they enjoyed swimming in and out of. The more cover they have the braver they are to come out. Birger Thank you for the confirmation. I definitely dont know as much as you guys do when it comes to these fish....always appreci...
