    Your featherfin can hurt the loaches.

    Try feeding him at night with bottom feeder rounds. They are mainly nocturnal. They are also shy in my experience; he may not eat while you're in the room.

    It's a synodontis eupterus. I've seen photos of his fish. :)

    a feed my whole African community sinking excel. its the only thing my synodons will come out for when the lights on. I've had him over two years, they don't eat much and they're tough as nails. they'll jump outta the tank just after lights out so be careful
