Do you have any other pics? It kind of look likes my synodontis eupterus but I can't be sure with its dorsal fin down in that picture.

Here's what my syno looks like:



Here's planetcatfish's site with plenty of pics, care instructions, etc.. If it is a syno, they get huge! Mine grew 1.5" in a little over a month.

Good luck.

Definitely a synodontis. Get a pic of it without the tube.

I don't know if its the picture or what but it looks greener than mine. Mine is a lighter brown with real dark brown spots. The pattern is the same, almost identical to mine. The other thing that had me confused is the dorsal fin... mine is huge, probably over an inch long.

I'm sure others will chime in however.
