Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

I keep trying to get some pictures of them...but still kinda skittish around my place. I figure they will take a while to actually get used to the new tank and household. I am a heavy footed walker...and i have two mastiffs that weigh about 100-120 lbs each. But to see them start this behavior less ...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

So ive been watching my tanks and have definitely noticed some strange behaviours. I keep catching two of my newest group of "multis" doing a dance i could only describe as courting or mating. The one...the bigger of the two, will swim around being followed by the other...who will "bite" at the vent...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

I am also thinking its "syno on syno" crime lol. They might have sensed breeding of your ancistrus or who knows. I was watching my tanks last night and witnessed a few of mine chasing each other around the tank. Theyre usually not THAT rough with each other...but anything is possible with them lol h...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

I am thinking it may be a grandiops tho. Still beautiful fish. 20200214_153403.jpg this second one is actually two pick ups. T...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Tried to get a few pics of the "petricola" i got a few weeks back. These guys are in my newly established QT tank...even tho i am sure theyre fine. I had to make some moves i usually wouldnt...i was forced to introduce the group of 8 "multi's" straight into my tank. i was not comfortable sticking so...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

Oh i know. I have had bad luck in the past(and hopefully not the present) with that as well. All too many times the LFS has fish mislabeled and give out false info as far as care and max size are concerned. P.s......Guys, i did a thing today... 20200208_172918.jpg 20200208_163629.jpg Group of 8 matu...

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

I was thinking the same actually...i definitely dont agree that theyre legit. This store actually has some tiny "petricola" that look more like hybrids as well. And this is where my girlfriend picked up a "synodontis piedratus"....which isnt even a real name lol.

Re: Ongoing Synodontis Thread

I am half expecting my "multi's" to be all grandiops. From what i've learned from the site, im expecting one hybrid as well..and what ive been told farm wete raised grandiops. I am really interested in seeing what the "true petricola" end up being as well lol.
