A species of upside- down catfish. Juveniles between are usually between 1.6 and 3.5 inches and are strikingly colored, with white, round blotches on a red-violet background
Adult specimens between are usually between 3.5 and 7 inches and are grey to dark violet, with reddish-yellow to bark brown-red blotches on the head, sides, adipose fin, and partly running together on the ventral surface.

These bottom dwelling Synodontis catfish should have their own territories. Best kept with larger fish such as rainbowfish, gouramis, geophagus, and congo tetras. This is a perfect bottom dweller for rift lake cichlid aquariums. In some African cichlid tanks the other inhabitants may nibble the long dorsal streamers of the catfish. While a peaceful fish, can be an aggressive eater and not an ideal tank-mate with discus.
