That's a direct contradiction, is it not? :question: jojoyojimbi has it right,bettababy said:Whether they are wild or captive bred will be the determining factor
Synodontis nigriventris are from the same continent, but that's as far as their "habitat/environment" are similar to Rift cichlids. Probably they can tolerate the same conditions, but I would hardly say that makes them "are the best cats to put with cichlids." There are far better alternatives.
