Re: petro or luci....again

Maybe I must trust Birger's and Richard's opinion......
Not a bad thing to do, Richard and I check with each other when we are doing identifications on synos.

Re: Curbing bullhead aggression?

I would just add...make sure it is a serracanthus, often the southern mottled form of nebulosus is mistaken for a serracanthus.

Re: Synodontis pardalis

these are not rift synos and will not reproduce in the same way at all. they are most likely egg scatterers using vegetation to spray their eggs.

Unless there is a change they would go on the list of unknowns.

For brichardi a 40.would be okay with plenty of river rock and current.also a large group of nigrivrntris is always good. THere are robertsi in NA too right now.
