The Featherfin Synodontis (Synodontis eupterus) is a popular aquarium catfish known for its unique appearance and interesting behavior. This fish is named for its distinctive feather-like fins, which extend from its dorsal and anal fins. It has a sleek, elongated body that is predominantly brown with a lighter-colored belly and darker spots or stripes along its sides. Featherfin Synodontis is known to be hardy and easy to care for, making it a good option for beginner aquarists. They are generally peaceful and can be kept with other non-aggressive fish. However, it's important to provide hiding spots and caves for the Featherfin Synodontis to reduce stress.
