polka dot catfish

Synodontis is the most widely-distributed mochokid genus. Synodontis species occur throughout most of the freshwaters of sub-Saharan Africa and the Nile River system. Synodontis species are found throughout Africa, except in the southernmost parts and the Maghreb, although most species occur in Central and West Africa. Their distribution is similar to that of cichlids, including the African Great Lakes and surrounding rivers.

Synodontis is the largest genus of catfishes (order Siluriformes) of the family Mochokidae. Synodontis may be known as squeakers due to their ability to make stridulatory sounds through their pectoral fin spines when handled or disturbed. Some species are also known for naturally swimming belly-up, earning the name upside-down catfish.[
