My bismarks are about 3 inches now and looking really good. They seem to grow a little slower than the Kigoma fronts but have more color at a smaller size.


This a pic from a year ago

Wow only 3 inches in a year they are slow growers!

Do they both get teeth and humps?

The look great tho for sure

Males will get big humps , females less so. They all get a significant set of teeth. They should grow faster now till they get to 8 inches or so then slowly again till full size, about 12 to 14 inches for males and 10 to 12 for females. This variety is from the southern end of Tanganyika the Kigomas come from the north.

I have always been a fan of Fronties just never had a big enough tank without Oscars in it.
Yours look great, slow to grow but worth the wait.
