This extraordinary breeding habit of the Synodontis Multipunctatus Catfish is one of the most interesting occurrences in the fishkeeping hobby. It is a fascinating process to watch, but the hobbyist must be prepared to intervene in order to ensure the eggs are successfully incubated. As such, it is important to have a plan in place for removing the catfish fry once their eggs have hatched. Additionally, supplementary feedings of baby brine shrimp should be provided to ensure the fry grow into healthy adult catfish.
Synodontis Catfish are obligate carnivores and should be offered sinking catfish pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, plus a good quality carnivore food.
