Cute little Christmas Synodontis. Can anyone give a species ID?

Hello I got this guy from a friend. He looks a lot like a Synodontis Eupterus but I viewed him for two hours and saw no inverted swimming.

Does anyone have any idea on this one?

Hard to tell looking from above the fish. Perhaps synodontis Petricola if dorsal fin is edged with white.Could also be Synodontis Multipunctatus or hybrid.
Synodontis Petricola ,will grow to around three and a half inches while synodontis Multipunctatus will reach approx seven inches.
Google images and info on Synodontis and see if either of these look like the fish you have.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

From what I have figured out from others it is most likely synodontis hybrid 4 (or possibly another one of the angelicus x schoutedeni hybrids. I find that somewhat unfortunate as it being a hybrid makes it difficult for me to determine how large he could grow to be and what he will be prone to act like.

He's definitely going to be a pretty fish though.

Here's some more pics:
