The only time that featherfin synodontis have been breed in captivity has been with the use of hormone injections. Typically beyond the abilities of home enthusiasts.

Fish farms have been able to breed them on a large scale, but not naturally. They use hormone therapy and artificial insemmination. You "could" do it at home, but most of us are not set up for that kind of project. Would be kind of cool as a high school/college science project.
