  11. So here is my Burundi Colony of 8, 2m 6f Around 23-30cm. 6x2x2 tank with 3ft sump. Fed on NLS and Brine shrimp. Bunnings play sand and some nice big rocks I stole from a mates yard, shhhh. The tank now has a clay pot behind the big rock on the right for the Alpha male. Might try and get some individual shots of the big female and males. The camera made out to be very black and white, but some of the fish, especialy the Alpha are lined with blue. Full tank Sweet, my fish.
  12. i am going to do a 6 ft tank project next year and i am trying to choose a species to breed along with my white calvus. i am tossing up between tropheus and frontosa. which are easier to breed, more interesting in a tank and which do you make more money out of? i have 4 frontosa atm and they seen cool and don't fight with my calvus but i have never had tropheus. if you have an idea of frontosa or tropheus, can you sugest a species of the one that you think would be good.
  13. i just bought some f1 kigoma 7bars frontosa that are 7 months old and about 7-9cm and was wanting to know how to tell what gender they are so i could trade some to introduce different blood lines. cheers timothy
  14. Hey everyone, I hear fronnies take ages to grow up, so i was wondering if i put one in a african tank 3 ft x 15 " x 18" with 1 male eureka red (6- 7 cm) 2 blue dolphins (very shy and about 6 cm) 1 electric yellow about 4 cm and 5 peppermints ranging from 4 - 9 cm yer i no big gap but i got 4 diff bloodlines so its sweeeet. If you think it would be alrite for these fish to mix i would definately look at getting one, if not thats life. Also has anyone else kept these i think they are the burundi frontosa, i so let me no of any problems or issues with keeping these fish together, i have heard of interbreeding with fronnies and blue dolphins but that is about it... trent
