    Here the hitch hiker is. Was a difficult shot, but got the body and most of the pattern. This is less than 1", so Juvie.

    Default This Sucks, Euptera???

    The Syno has settled down and is hiding in a place that I can see it well enough to compare to web images. The sucky thing is, it looks like this one:
    Featherfin Catfish

    It cannot be the first one, because mine is lacking all spots in the dorsal fin area and is all networked like the one above. If it's a Euptera Juvie, I will have to rehome the fish, once it starts getting above 3". Til then I'll keep the fella. Time will tell if I was right in this comparison to Euptera, as fish will lose networked coloring and will gain spotting and grow paler if it is one.

    If anyone can confirm all this, please let me know. Thanks everyone for your help.

    Well, if this is who this Syno is, then there is no choice but to rehome the fish come 3"+ or territorial behavior. The tank just cannot handle anything larger. It's currently home to my Asian themed livestock. Which is contained in my newly refurbished 10 gallon.

    Thanks again everyone.

    That sucks. Any chance It'll much on snails while I wait? Got tons of MTS that need mowing down, LOL.

    But seriously, what's my time table you think? 1-2 months? A bit longer?

    Maybe my LFS will do me a solid, and maybe trade for something--small. By then, this fella should be in prime shape for a owner who has something a bit roomier than this.

    Been snooping around the Loach sites. Had my eye on Dwarf Chain Loach.
