Petriola fish are small Synodontis. These fish are tan with black spots. They have white-lined black fins and white whiskers.
Synodontis catfish need water that is oxygenated and has a relatively strong current. Provide hiding places situated in areas of heavy current for shelter.
Dwarf Petricola catfish are omnivores, and should be offered both meaty foods and vegetation. This can be in the form of flakes, pellets, and freeze-dried or frozen foods like bloodworms and blackworms. They are peaceful fish, and can be kept in most community aquariums. Many can tolerate a wide range of water conditions, including hard water and high pH, and can even be kept in some African cichlid aquariums.
