The Synodontis Angelicus are one of the more aggressive catfish. You may be better off with Synodontis Multipunctatus three or more or Synodonts Petricola three or more or the Lake Malawi Synodontis Njasse.
In my aquarium i keep four Multipunctatus, a Synodontis Decorus, a Synodontis Shoutedeni, and I added a small Synodontis Angelicus six months ago. There are no issues yet. In my 180 i keep haps and peacocks with the catfish. I have multiple tanks and know that I may have to move the Angelicus at some point. They are really cool looking.

Good luck

Thank you. More question, if you don't mind.....how do these catfish eat, do they just eat off of the bottom whatever food they find? Fish going on top to feed already have eaten all food.....

Catfish are fine eating left over food that the cichlids do not eat. I am not sure where you are located, however The Wet Spot Tropical Fish have a nice selection of catfish. I am in Canada and I have ordered from them.

Good luck

A friend breeds several species of Frontosa. I think they are cool. I have not yet ventured into Tanganikan Cichlids.

Catfish are not realy agressive. I OWN a Large synodontis. HŤ lives in a Large tank About 180 gallon. But he doesn't use a lot of space. Size of fish is 8 inch. But there are more bigger fish in the tank.
