That's a good looking fish, especially with the contrast of the black and white. No clue what he is but congrats on such a good find.

Looks like Synodontis Lucipinis, otherwise known as the dwarf petricola catfish. They stay pretty small and are good community tank fish.

Does it have lots of distinctive spots on the body maybe as noted above, or body less distictive spots, maybe Synodontis Granulosa,


or is it's body more one color greyish to grey black?
