beautiful fish - and very ncie close up photos

i have a fish very similar but not quite the same. do you know if they are all very fast growers? mine is about 5cm just now maybe. i was told however that she would grow only to 12cm so i think theyre definitely different species, althoguh in the same family

this is the same fish as i have in case that makes a difference

Very nice synodontis eupterus, I have one that looks a lot like that one and is about 14cm.

juliewiegand- upsidedown cats and eupterus are different species same family.
