    Default Website for accurate syno catfish ID?


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm trying to ID my 3 syno cats, but I need to find a trustworthy website. Syno cats are so often mislabeled as the wrong species that many of the websites I visit don't match each other, making it difficult for me to accuratly ID my fish. If anyone has a decent website, with accurate photos, please post it up. Thanks!

    If you post a photo of each of them I can probably help you out. I've kept many, many species of Synodontis over the years.

    Getting photos of them has been a huge hassle. They are seriously nocternal and just hide out on their rock enclosure whenever the lights are on. I can see parts of them which I've been trying to use as reference but I haven't been able to get a clear photo.

    Here are the best photos I could get. They all tend to hide in the anubuis planted rock I have and REALLY hate coming out when the lights are on. Any help with ID would be appreciated. #3 has a nice plant cave at the moment so the only way to get a photo of anything other than the tail is to net him and put him into a holding tank which I don't have the time or energy to mess around with at the moment. From what I've been able to piece together they appear to be either Synodontis euptera or Synodontis robbiana.
