What kind of catfish is this? #1
Hi guys ... Can anyone identify this catfish?

He's pretty big, about 5ins I think (not great at mental measuring).

Thanks

Hi, my guess would be Synodontis nigromaculatus. Spotted Squeaker.

Synodontis eupterus is the scientific name for the Featherfin Catfish, it's also called the Featherfin Squeeker along with several other varients on the names Featherfin, Squeeker, Synodontis and Catfish.
I have a featherfin too and I think that's what you've got in the photo - but there are so many catfish I can't be 100%.
