Question About Frontosa

Post by Colton » Sat Nov 10, 2007 10:15 am

Hi Everyone,

I didn't know where to post this......but I have a question about Frontosa's

Can Frontosa be mixed with any other breeds of Cichlids?

I've heard not to mix Malawi & Tanganyika Cichlids and I've also heard
Frontosa are different they can be mixed with anything that won't fit in their mouth

can someone help?

Thanks,

Colton

is anyone bringing Frontosa to the extravaganza
on Saturday or Sunday?

Colt, you can mix them with Malawis, as long as the fronts aren't a whole lot bigger. I wouldn't expect them to spawn under those conditions, though.

I have, had Frontosa with many different fish including malawians. I have had them breed with Pseudos in the tank etc.. Some like Melochromis, afras could bother the Fronts. I also have Congo tetras, barbs in with my Fronts and many catfish. Just remember that these guys can get up to 16inches and live 20 years. They need a 100 gallon tank if you have a few? Also good to have a more female ratio to a male 1/3 or more. Larger tank may handle 2 males 4 + females. The males can be tuff on the mates or other males. PVC pipe works good for breeding. Each fish should have their own pipe.
