More info

Belonging to the catfish family synodontis, the upside down catfish is one of the smaller fish in this genus; gaining its name from its peculiar feeding habit that involves it swimming upside down, feeding from the water surface.

Growing to around 4 inches, they are very peaceful and make for interesting additions to community set-ups with similarly peaceful fish such as tetras. They tend to inhabit all levels of the tank, where you will see them swimming underneath leaves upside down, or exploring rocks and wood.

They are easy to care for, accepting a wide variety of flakes, pellets, wafers and live food. Recommended tank size is 40 litres+, with a preferred temperature in the region of 24 degrees.

For an even greater visual appeal, aim for a group of 5 or more; this will allow them to display natural behaviours and playful attitude with each other.
