    Hi guys

    We've had this catfish since I was young and I have no idea what specific species it is. I think it's a synodontis multipunctatus? But if someone can confirm that'd be great!

    This is the best pic I could get. All help appreciated.

    Hi ROY!

    I thought he was that after trailing through tons of catfish pics but he seems darker and doesnt have the whiter parts to his tail?!

    Do a google for Catfish Forum UK someone should know the variety for you.

    Hi Keith and Shawn!

    Ive tried using multiple sites to search through but haven't posted anything yet. The website I've had the most luck on is planet catfish. I was pretty sure it was a Syno. Multipunct. earlier but after reading a bio on it I'm now thinking "she" might be a large Syno. Grandiops. I can't get a clear enough view for long enough of its pectoral fins to count them though.
