    I have about a dozen or so multipunctatus (really grandiops) in my mixed Malawi 150- they're a hoot! Very active and cruise around the bottom shark-like looking for food. Very social amongst themselves as well. If you're lucky this particular species of Syno will even use the cichlids to breed, as surrogate mothers.

    Same here I have a bunch with my Peacocks and haps as well. Couple are bigger ones too. I've got four synodontis eruptus in my Peacock & hap tank and two of the cats are up around 5-6". Then I have four synodontis Multi's in my other tank with Mbunas. synodontis cats make a great addition to any cichlid tank.
