    Deefinitely either a petricola or lucipinnis, but NOT a multi. S. multi's have white bellies.
    How big is the rogue?
    Incidentally, even a 29 is too small for a group of any Synodontis species. I'd advise returning the fish to the lfs for credit toward another, more suitable species (Cory cats come to mind for a 29, or a BN if you have algae problems.)
    I'd love to take the fish off your hands, but $15 is a bit too much for a single specimen that goes for $5-8 online, plus shipping costs.
    For future reference, S. petricola and/or lucipinnis have white edges on all their fins, but NOT the tail. The other distinguishing difference is the spotted belly that multi's DON'T have. S. multi's also grow a bit larger (~+1"), and generally require cichlid hosts for spawning. They will scatter eggs w/out hosts if conditioned for spawning like petricola/lucipinnis, but usually eat them soon afterward.
    I strongly believe the sun cat is the culprit in the disappearing fish case. They are a predatory species, unlike the Synodontis genus in general.
