The Synodontis Flavitaeniatus Catfish is an excellent addition to any aquarium of 50 gallons or more. It is incredibly hardy and can adapt to most water conditions, but it is sensitive to nitrates and a current should be present in the aquarium. To ensure the well-being of this fish, provide it with a fine sandy bottom and many large roots and crevices for hiding places. Furthermore, it can be kept as a schooling fish or with other Synodontis species, as well as African Cichlids of similar size. These fish are quite peaceful and get along with most of their tankmates.
The Synodontis Flavitaeniatus Catfish is a species with a unique care requirement and is sensitive to changes in the environment. As a result, the success rate for breeding this species in aquariums has been low. To increase the chances of successful breeding, it is important to provide the proper environment and food for the catfish. Additionally, it is important to understand their social behavior, as the catfish are very social creatures.
Synodontis Catfish are omnivores and should be offered sinking catfish pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms, tubifex, and a good quality flake food.
