You are right! The only vendor off the top of my head is Toyin of Rehoboth Aquatics. He specializes in Africans... Well, Dave Rinaldo from Texas is real good too with synos. I forget / don't know what his joint is called. He is active on PCF (Planet Catfish).Seems about right. My only experiences with syno cats were suspect hybrids throughout their lifetimes. I wonder if there is a vendor out there who specializes in wild caught syno. I mean I see a lot of specialized cichlid, pleco, ray vendors that have meticulously catalogued catch location and species info, but with synos it's always vague, like "it's a schoutedeni....I think..."
