The quick find topic

Postby Jools » Thu Dec 04, 2014 11:40 am

Hi,

You've probably found this topic because you were trying to find a species using the "catfish quickfind" search box and clicked the "Can't find it?" link.

So, please reply and tell us two things. (a) What did you, exactly please, type into the quick find box and (b) a longer description of what catfish you were trying to find.

Cheers,

Jools

What kind of catfish is this?? I got him from a donation tank at my local aquarium and the owner had called him a farlowella catfish.but when I look on google the pictures look nothing like him. Help!

He looks like a feather fin but has a solid silver stripe down his side and has black and grey spots

Looks like Synodontis eupterus with Lateral line disease.

Agreed. Feather fin synodontis (S. eupterus) with lateral line erosion.

Is lateral line erosion harmful? I have cichlids in the same tank, is it something that can effect them?

No as far as I understand its a sign of a deficiency of some sort- its not contagious but other synos being kept the same way will probably develop it because they are in the same conditions
