    • Avoid aggressive or very vigorous fish, as it is quite shy.
    • Can be kept in groups with no problems.
  5. Sexual Dimorphism:

    • Adult males have an elongated caudal fin and small bristles covering the body.
    • Difficult to sex due to their small size, but males have a thinner and more pointed genital papilla.
  6. Reproduction:

    • Unrecorded in aquaria.

Remember, acclimating Microsynodontis carefully is essential, as they can be delicate when first imported. Enjoy keeping this fascinating catfish in your aquarium! 🐠🌿 If you’d like more information, you can explore detailed profiles on Seriously Fish and Aqua Imports123. 🌟
