The Synodontis Eupterus Catfish, or Featherfin Squeaker, has it’s origins from the rivers and lakes in Africa. It is a wide-bodied catfish and is pale in coloration with many black spots. This species is also known as an upside-down catfish, as it will hang in a flip-flopped position. As a digger, the Synodontis Eupterus Catfish will enjoy a fine sandy bottom with large roots and crevices for hiding places in a tank of 50 gallons or more. Sensitive to nitrates, good water conditions are needed. It prefers a current in the aquarium. It can be kept as a schooling fish or in a tank with other Synodontis species. The Synodontis Eupterus Catfish may also be maintained with most African Cichlids of similar size. Synodontis Catfish are omnivores and should be offered sinking catfish pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, plus a good quality flake food.
