The Synodontis Eupterus Catfish is an ideal addition to any aquarium. It is a hardy species that is well-suited to a variety of aquascapes, and is particularly comfortable in tanks of 50 gallons or more. It also has a preference for a current in the aquarium and requires good water conditions in order to thrive. Furthermore, this species can live in harmony with both other Synodontis species and most African Cichlids of the same size. All in all, this is an ideal species for aquarists looking to add a unique and attractive fish to their tank.

The Synodontis Eupterus Catfish is notoriously difficult to breed in captivity, and there have been few successful attempts so far. With the right expertise and resources, however, this species can potentially be bred in the home aquarium. I am confident that with the right guidance, aquarists can be successful in breeding this species. Additionally, I am committed to researching and finding the best methods for aquarists to ensure a successful breeding experience.

Synodontis Catfish are opportunistic feeders and should be offered a variety of feeds, including sinking catfish pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, plus a good quality flake food.
