Hey all, I just set up my first tank since I was a kid, and finally added fish yesterday. The pet store clerk sold me what they said are julii cats, but I’m pretty sure that’s wrong. Can anyone help me identify these guys? Very elusive, but active, likes to hide in cracks and under stuff, swims upside down often... super cute little guys. I’m already head over heels for them ?

Looks and sounds like a Upside down catfish. Not sure which specie tho

Synodontis nigriventris possibly??. Someone might be able to confirm the specie for you

I have 2 Upside Down Cats. I believe that’s what this is. I could be wrong, but that’s what it appears to be.

As a few others have already said, I'd say they're upside down catfish. Very sweet and full of personality.

Should be kept in groups of around 4, which gives them confidence in coming up to the front of the tank and exploring more often.

Can be a little expensive - mine were £12 each ($16 USD).
