  1. Syn. Petricola es not from Lake Malawi, its from Lake Tanganyika. There is another species which is known in the trade as "dwarf petricola" which is Synodontis Lucipinnis, just to clear up any confusion in your title with the word "dwarf"

  2. Ottimo video! Ho acquistato un pesce gatto nano molto simile a quello del video, solo che il mio è marrone con poche macchie nere e il ventre e bianco con maculature nere molto fitte, la coda e rotonda senza biforcature, sapete dirmi di che specie si tratta? Grazie
