I have four adults about a year old I believe I have one gravid female. They are in excellent condition. I was planning on breeding them but have decided to allocate that tank space to other projects.

I'd sell the 4 for $50 and what ever the Fed Ex next day air cost would be Cary, Il. to you, PM me if interested.

Aloha DogFish!

Not sure if had a chance to do so yet, but you might want to give Kalihi Pets a call. I've seen them with synodontis petricolas as well as multipunctatus from time to time. Best of luck in your search! Been a while since I played with synodontis!

Don't know where to get them but be aware that most fish sold are not pretricola. S. petricola is relatively rare in captivity. Most of the stuff sold in the hobby are S. lucipinnis. S. lucipinnus has irregularly shaped spots, petricola more uniformly round spots. Everything I've seen in Hawaii in the past 10 years or so has been lucipinnis.
