Synodontis notatus (Spotted Synodontis, One-spot Squeaker)
Large, pinkish-grey body colour with a variable number of eyespots on the flanks (typically one on each flank, but two- or three-spot individuals are not uncommon). Has been confused with Synodontis ocellifer in the trade; that species is similar but has more spots on the body and also tends to be much more peaceful.
Sexually dimorphic: males are less robust than the females in build, and have longer pectoral fin spines and longer tail fins.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Young specimens are peaceful, even sociable; adults are territorial towards their own kind and other Synodontis.
Recommended for robust community tanks only, these fish work well with midwater fish of similar size such as climbing perch and large barbs and characins. Not too aggressive but hardy cichlids will also work well as tankmates. May fight with benthic fish over hiding places, so do not overcrowd and provide each fish with its own cave or burrow. This allowed, they work well with loaches, thorny catfish, plecs, bichirs, etc.
Omnivorous, will do well on a mixed diet including insect larvae, worms, chopped seafood, algae wafers, spinach, tinned peas, etc.
No reports of breeding in captivity.
