Soft water syno?

Post by TAZY »

Are there any syno cats that would be OK in soft water. I particularly like the look of s. multi and petricola, but i know that these wont be suitable.

Are there any alternative cats, whether syno or not, that have a similar appearance to those above, and ok in soft water, and are active when lights are on?

My tank is 100x40x45 lxdxh. The tank is empty at the moment

Synodontis is found all over Africa, and the waters in West Africa are soft. Similar to Amazon water, in fact.

So there are plenty, but these are not easy to find. Active during the day might be hard however.
