synodontis I’d help

Post by Joshuakahan »

Hi, I’ve been curious as to what type of syno I have and was referred here from MFK. This guy is about 4” and has been since I got him about 3 years ago. Any help is appreciated

I would say it's probably a hybrid, something like Synodontis sp_hybrid(4). Very pretty and clean looking. What it's back story / origin?

Sorry Birger, I am not sure what this means except that you probably agree with Jools.

I would imagine that to be Birger's meaning, it's usual/customary on this forum that when someone answers then others who agree don't tend to respond. So a further response would tend to be a challenge. So, while I don't think you meant it that way, your *bump* is challenging my opinion, which is very normal and fine, but in this specific case, I don't think anyone's got a better answer hence Birger's point.
