Oh yea they were price and so were the Zaire. I cant imagine a school of them would be bad. In my experience with tang catfish five or more and they will be more active. So i figured it would be the same. If it doesnt work out they should not be hard to sell.

Wow! That's crazy thank you for the reference. I'm hoping it will go well as there will be 15 gibbs and the five small granuloses in the tank alone. Fingers crossed!

I am currently keeping a mystus mysticetus, hemibagrus olyroides, and an ntt datnoid with mine. No issues with him so far, he even shares a cave with the hemibagrus. He is by far the most boisterious fish in the tank and he will sometimes push the other fish around on occasion but it has not caused any issues.

so yeah, unless the tank is the size of your living room, multiple grans is a bad thing. they do fine with S multi as tank mates but the multis i have are a really boisterous bunch, always all over the place and this would appear to keep the granulosus in his place. i see him sometimes, lights out or frozen blood worms or black worms he will come out for

Update: He is doing great, fully recovered from the damage he sustained after being chewed on my my old endlicheri bichir. He is one of the most active cats I have ever seen, he will roam around during the day and at night he swims laps around the tank and begs for more food.
Here is is chilling with my hemibagrus olyroides + other daytime pics

Syno Granulosus is indeed the holy grail of synos as of today.
Congratulations to all who have them.
They are now for sale in the east coast at $100 - 150 each.
Price is coming reasonable....👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

They are not great in a group, especially the females as they get larger, they will rip each other apart.The largest tank possible is always best for these....the 265 mentioned sounds perfect.

When they are sub 2", do they start out full black? Or do they have spots like a multipunctatus?

Thanks Dave! I just got 4 that are roughly 1.5" and look just like that as far as I can tell. Looking forward to growing these guys out!
