Synodontis petricola (pygmy leopard catfish?)
If you've had them, tell me more!
I got six from a fish auction and they are SWEEEEEET!!!
I think they'll love my tanks, my high pH, and varied diet...I'm so excited!
ya gotta love the shots where the fish are swimming right at you : )
hopefully i'll get some more pics when they, um, slow down (?).
Awww they're cuties!! I pers hadn't had them but my breeder did and I could spent hrs watching them guys they seem to be more forthcoming and active then most other cory cats.
they are super cute, make my yo yo loaches look like godzillas in there. and they all made it through their first 48 hours! i hope they all make it...
Awesome find, Steph!! They are super cute. I never heard of a fish auction (besides online). That's pretty darn cool!
btw i think these are called "dwarf cuckoo catfish" and not "pygmy leopard catfish". go figure...i always believe the internet : )
I had found when you have no sick signs or white spots the first 2 days you're safe after that. Generally they float is something is way wrong within the first 24hrs of transport.
oh i'm glad you said this. actually i was worried about one of them, just sitting in the corner by itself under the filter current. this was, like, the day after i got them (sunday night?) so i checked nitrates (20ppm! record for my tank) so i did a wc and by the next morning they were all 'normal'. today they actually came out to eat!!! now THAT is something to celebrate : ) they just look so tiny and fragile, and freakin' cute!
They are adorable! I just got back from my favorite LFS (an hour's drive from my house) and they had a tank of these. Really hard not to come home with some. Very cute!!
