7 Yellow labs, 1 Baenschi, 1 maylandi, 1 Hueseri. 1 Syno cat, not sure which yet, depends on availability.

Fully stocked now or room for anything else?

the catfish are rarely happy on their own.

Is this a 55? In that case, you're probably full.

Ah yeah its the 55.

I cant get Lucippinis, or garunteed pure multis so i'm thinking of getting Syno. Njassae. But they grow to 7" so i'm concerned about adding more than 1.

It will survive, that's pretty certain, but it will probably just hide all the time. I'm having a similar problem, I'm looking for a smallish, readily available catfish that can happily live on its own or with a single partner to munch fry. I don't want to never see it, that seems a bit pointless - especially considering the price African rift lake catfishes go for :eek:

Some people have had luck with chinese catfishes, but I don't even know where to begin looking.

I thought this one was pretty hard to get? Figure 7.5" at maturity, but this one is naturally nocturnal and territorial so it may prefer not to be in a group.

When i asked my contact about Lucippinis he scoffed and said "You'll be lucky, why dont you get a njassae instead? Thats FROM malawi and i can get those.."
