    The one in the link is Synodontis nigriventris, aka common upside-down catfish. They're a social, dwarf species, and don't grow very large. There are literally hundreds od larger species of Synodontis that are also commonly called upside-down catfish. S. eupterus (aka featherfin) is one of the most common, and there have been several hybrids turning up recently as well. Most species of Synodontis grow larger than S. nigriventris, some even a bit larger than an Oscar. An Asian upsde-down catfish looks nearly identical to a Synodontis species, but is a holy terror to its own kind unless kept in a large group. Most larger species of Synodontis are also territorial and conspecific-aggressive. There are a few exceptions, but you need to figure stocking space as well.

    ^^^^Please click the eggs/dragons, thanks.

    The Asian upside-down or a similar-sized Synodontis species. The Asian cats are sometimes available at Wal-Mart, check your lfs for a Synodontis (or an Asian that has outgrown someone's tank) if you're looking for a fair-sized fish to start with.

    Synos won't be very capable of defending themselves against an oscar. Their only means of defense would be to hide. They are not very active during tank viewing hours either. I still highly recommend a four-line pim. blochii catfish. Great scavenger and won't take any bullying. Gets a bit larger than the synos and likes same water conditions as an oscar. They are also very hardy as far as catfish go.

    i have a 9 inch oscar
    and inherited this Cory Cat.
    He was a tiny thing when i got him and i was sure he was lunch for
    one of my fish, but he has survived the oscar and 2 jack dempseys.
    they all get along very well. Now hes full grown and fat as hell. I named him Tank cause hes solid and tough.
    im actually gonna get more corys soon.
