Can anyone tell me whats the real name of this fish pls!
Need help identifying this fish pls...pic is attached. Thanks
Thanks....idiot at pet store told me it was a banjo! I didn't know anything about it until i googled the banjo and saw it isn't what i got...How big do these usually get?
Well I'd be cautious because I don't think the Upside Down Catfish is the only catfish that swims that way. How big is it now?
The photo is on its side, so the fish is actually hanging vertically on the tank wall.
It is not a Banjo, no doubt of that. It might be a Synodontis species. I don't have time at the moment, have to head off; but if you check Planet Catfish, they have hundreds of photos.
Thanks Byron, will check it out.
@Fredsterbit it is around 6 or 7cm now and i've had it for 6 months already...hope that helps.
It is a Synodontis catfish. The semi oval, fleshy fin (adipose fin) between the dorsal and caudal fin is an extremly comon characteristic to the Family of fish that contains the genus Synodontis; I dont know of a Synodontis with out the fin looking like this. I would say that this is a Synodontis euptera but could very well be a hybrid as they are very common. Most of the Syno's available at Petsmart or chain fish stores in the states that I have seen are hybrids.
That is definitely a synodontis, and I would agree that it looks like euptera (aka, featherfin synodontis).
