Thank you for the pics and info, MedRed! I looked up microsynodontis, and they're not what I want. I want that bala shark shape and manner of cruising. But, clearly, a bala shark won't work for me. But the little pygmy synodontis has been on my mind for a long time!
Would they eat cardinal tetras? I think they're about the smallest fish I have in the tank. I have a feeling they'd wipe out any pelvicachromis fry I might get, but the parents do protect them fiercely until they get a bit older. And I honestly don't want a hundred fry growing up in my tank with no place to put them (yeah, I could sell them, but I don't want to get into shipping live fish).
Please take a quick look at the link I gave above listing the fish I have, and let me know if there's any fish you believe would be in danger if I got one or more of the little pygmy synodontis.
