Upside Down Catfish

So, i went to petsmart to get a SA bumblebee cat, ok, fast forward here's what happened, there wasn't one, instead they had an upside down catfish, i hadn't done much reasearch but i currently (and still have) a rescued syno cat already.So, i got him and named him "Down" (he's an upside down syno, so why not).He is currently in a QT tank and is VERY healthy, I will be updating and such on this thread about him when i have the time .

Didn't you just make a post about researching fish before buying them?

We have all made impulse buys, and if he is an catfish expert, he should know the basic care. I would assume he is getting a group, but if he is not, he should.

To be fair to lungfish, syno cats do well in groups but it doesnt have to be the exact same syno.

I think OP only got one upside-down catfish because the store only had One in stock.

Nothing else really happening (aside from my plans to get a fire eel). I will make a new thread called "upside down catfish blog" as soon as he is out of QT (4 days).
