I have 3 synod catfish in my tank and have never seen ones with these markings at various aquatic places I use, was wondering if anyone knew there full name? Thanks

difficult to tell from those pics ideally it would need to be a side view . but 2 possibilities are S. multipunctatus or S.petricolla but there are other possibilities

Side view would be best. What's the dorsal like? Is it fairly low or hi-fin?
