Description of Synodontis Ocellifer
There are several color forms of the Synodontis Ocellifer available. Some have color in the finnage, while others have almost no color other than their large spots. The large spot variety, which is the most attractive of the color forms, used to be quite rare but is fairly common now.
Although this Synodontis (like most of this genus) gets rather large, reaching up to 8″ (20 cm) when mature, it is an excellent addition to a large community aquarium. The Synodontis Ocellifer are fairly hardy fish and are not difficult to keep in a well maintained environment.The Synodontis Ocellifer Catfish comes from various river systems of Western Africa and is a peaceful bottom scavenger. It is yellowish to brown with many black spots.
A 50 gallon or larger aquarium with stable temperature, and plenty of rocks and plants provides a suitable environment. The Synodontis Ocellifer Catfish is a very peaceful tank member and appreciates having several hiding places.
Synodontis Ocellifer Catfish are omnivores and should be offered sinking catfish pellets, freeze-dried bloodworms and tubifex, and a good quality flake food.
