Don't you only have a 45 gallon tank?

To the OP, good luck with your new guy. I have kept them in the past. I am not personally a fan of their temperament, but they are a very neat species. I do suggest getting a few more when they are in stock since this species can be especially shy and seems to stress less in groups. Also, make sure you have a lot of cover for them. there are actually several species that swim upside down though. Double check which one you have to make sure it is Synodontis nigriventris (the most commonly available). I have read that they will be fine with other similarly sized synos, though personally I believe this species does better with a few more of its own kind to cut down on potential stress. JME.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.
