Quick Overview

Synodontis Petricola


A native of Lake Tanganyika, this catfish requires Rift Lake water conditions. It exhibits "cuckoo-like" breeding behaviour: It interrupts a spawning pair of mouthbrooding cichlids and manages to dupe the female cichlid into also brooding catfish eggs. The catfish develop faster than the cichlid larvae and feed on the young cichlids while they are still being incubated by the female cichlid. A popular catfish for rift lake aquariums, growing to 10cm.
