The Synodontis "Jaguar" Hybrid is a man made hybrid cross between Synodontis Decorus and Synodontis Multipunctatus. The result is a beautiful fish for the aquarium hobby which is very popular. Catfish purists will typically avoid hybrids for their aquarium, but for those who are not planning to breed and just want a gorgeous Synodontis, this may be the fish for you.
Synodontis catfish are overall peaceful toward their tank mates, but it is recommended that tank mates be larger than this catfish can get in its mouth, because it may take the opportunity to eat a very small fish if it presents itself. Recommended aquarium size for this fish is an aquarium at least 30 inches long, but a 55 gallon or larger would be ideal.
