Happy to report that my original 7 Mobas are doing great and slowly growing. I saw a synodontis Granulosa the other day and was struck by how cool it looked. Knowing the size of them and their aggresssive nature, I am concidering one for my 180. Has anyone had any experience with them or have any advise? Thanks!

not super easy to find S. granulosis available.
had a few years ago, semi aggressive.
S. multipunctata if you find larger ones over 6 inches i like better because they do better in groups, but the granulosis does get a few inches bigger with is nice. mine were about 8 inch.
if with adult frontosa, make sure the tank mate is at least 6 inches or more than half the size of the biggest frontosa in the tank.

My group of Fronts are right around 2.5-3". If I were to find a Granulosis, I would only add one. Multipunctatas are my back up.

After further research, I have decided to go with Multipunctatis.

In a 220 with 6 Mobas, would 5 be a good number? More? I know they are social and get to 6-7", but I am a bit concerned about bio load.

Multipuncs are lovely cats. In a 220 you could have plenty more than 5 if you wanted. Be warned though as they will steal eggs.

Yes they steal eggs and leave theirs to be mixed in with the other eggs. The cats hatch out first eating the other eggs. They do not care for the eggs but leave it to others.
