Tandanus alternative ?

I'm looking for a catfish that looks the same as a Tandanus (but doesn't grow as large) to keep with my africans. Something that grows to a max of say ... 8 inches.

Any suggestions ?

Rendahls catfish

cheers, looks good from what i caould find on google - have you kept them with cichlids before ?

if i can find some i was thinking about throwing in two or three with about thirty mixed malawis into a 6x2x2

I keep them in my native tank. I normally keep pictus cats or synos with my cichlids. But they could work with cichlids. They are pretty hardy fish. Just gotta remember bout the poison barb in their dorsal fin...

Cheers Jarrod.

It's for a 6x2x2 - how do you think say three common BN's, three rendahls, and three pictus would go together ?

I'd go either pictus or rendahls not both. Rendahls eat like crazy so watch your fish. Hahahaha

so either are fine with BN's but won't get along together ?

I consider my catfish as my little vacuum cleaners. But I fear if your pictus might go hungry if you housed it with a rendahls. Rendahls don't stop eating. I think pictus and synodontis eruptus might be better for you. That's my opinion anyway
