I never see my upside down catfish hardly at all. I saw him the other day just briefly after a feeding but I can't even figure out where he is.

They are bad to hide

One of the odd things I have learned about fish over the years.
The more places to hide you give them, the more they are out and about.

Trust me, my tank is very well planted and has that ruin as I mentioned. I saw it yesterday when I was vacuuming the gravel because I had of course stirred things up. When it first got here it was exploring around the tank but that was I think in order to figure out how not to be seen. Sigh.

Which species of Synodontis is it? S. nigriventris is the most commonly labelled "UD Catfish", but it's also a common name for Syno's in general. S. nigriventris is a small, schooling species, and don't really appreciate being kept as singles or pairs.

Yes...I bet it's just because he's alone. If you can ever get a bigger tank and get him some friends I bet that would help.
