Synodontis Frontosus is a peaceful species that can be kept with large fish with the same temperament. It is a rare synodontis but not listed on the endangered species list. He grows to about 12 inches and has a gray/brown colored body with a high fin. It has no special swimming preference and will even be seen upside down in the home aquarium. He needs no decorations in the tank and sand or gravel is a good substrate. He is shy yet personable and is not overly active yet active enough to entertain you. He loves a cave to hide in but will only use it once in awhile. In nature they feed on algae,macrophites, detritus,crustaceans,insects and mollucks, live worms and dahnia. In your home aquarium they will readily accept sinking cichlid pellets,catfish pellets,frozen silversides,frozen Krill, and algae wafers
Breeding in the Aquarium is not known. According to fishbase in the wild breeding takes place during flooding in June to early dry down in January
