The Kigoma are great Frontosa, I believe they are actually the only true Frontosa as well, the rest are Giberosa. The thing that is neat about them is the fins the dorsal on the dominant male will have a Gold tint to it and the fins grow out really long. They don't get the hump of a Burundi or the color of a Zaire though... But imo they are the best looking Frontosa and if I ever get the space I'm gonna try and breed a group of them. At the moment I have a pair of Burundi the male is just gorgeous.

The rest of the fronts are here. They are a bit smaller only about an 1.25 inch.

I'm ok Nicki, enjoying non-hospital food and watching the fronts. I'm reduced in mobility for awhile but good to be home. The Calvus are all hiding will post pics when I can see a whole fish

That is the plan, I'll get another few later I'd like to end up with 2 males and 6-8 females.I put some really tiny Mbuna hybrid fry in and they have been hunting them down. It should be fun to watch these guys mature, they schooled right up with the larger fronts. They are a little lost in the big tank just now but they'll grow in to it in a few years.

Very nice pics Staffie, I like the hints of yellow or gold in the dorsal fin. My little ones are eating like crazy. All the little Mbuna hybrids I gave them are gone this morning.
