Hi all,

Little question:
Do upside down catfish (Synodontis nigriventris) eat small snails?

Thnx for feedback

Regards,
Thomas

I don't have any experience with them, but I know they normally eat insects and stuff off the surface and occaisonally, algae as well. I doubt they'd eat snails though, since they stay on the bottom or on the sides of the tank and s. nigriventris is adapted for catching food off the surface or in the water column.
