Africa; Orangestriped squeakers are found in the waterways of Zaire.


Females tend to be larger and plumper than the males but sexing with these fish cannot always be accurate.


As of yet, there are no reported cases of Orangestriped squeakers breeding in the aquarium.


The expected life span for Synodontis flavitaeniatus is 5-8 years.

Short description

Add piping, caves and bogwood to provide hiding places, each specimen of this fish will require its own spot so bear this in mind when adding the décor. Keep Synodontis flavitaeniatus in small groups as solitary fish tend to be shy, especially if kept with larger tank mates.
