The Mbuna in this picture are only 1.25-1-5 inches. The Syno is probably closer to 4 inches

I wish I could participate in this, but my syno's are not photogenic at all... they never stop moving. In fact, randomly some of mine will just go ballistic and flip around all over the place. It is pretty difficult to describe but they are not moving in any particular direction and its not like they are shaking or anything, their bodies whip around in a circle.

Mine like to hide most of the time until the lights go out but here are a couple pics I was able to get of two of my six.

This is my favorite syno I own. It is a hybrid that is purposely crossed to get the nice pattern they have. It's crossed between Eupterus x an Angelicus. I got him about 2 yrs ago when he was only about 1.5", he's now almost a full 7" long.

Did they have to kill one or both of the parents to create the hybrid? I've heard horror stories.

No one really know for sure how they were first breed/crossed. Some people think they are a man made species and others think it is a new naturally occurring species. Pretty much the only thing that is "for sure" on this species is that they are Eupterus x an Angelicus, and that they first showed up imported through Russia. Other than that there's still much unknown about them.
