Upsidedown Cats..


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Ive had my first tank for about three months now and in the first group of fish I got was two cute little Upsidedown Cats that ive only seen about four or five times.

My tank is 2ft and aprox 60ltrs comunity tank with a home made slate enviroment. (lots of small caves and tunnels)

Is this a common trait of theas cats??

They are almost too big for the caves they hide in now.

Im sure they come out at night but i was just wondering if this is normal?? Its a shame because i like to wach there strange habbits..

Tank for any info on shy little guys. wink.gif Jester

Believe it or not, but Upsidedown cats (Synodontis nigraventris) if that is the fish we are talking about, is a surface feeder. It's absolute favourite food is mosquitoe lavae (wrigglers). Is why it has developed the "upside down" colouration, swims the wrong way up, and sneeks out at night ! To snag them tastey mozzies!!

Think about it !!! blush.gif
