Great looking fish. I don't know a lot about african cichlids but I know that one looks great.

Great looking fish. I love frontosas and may consider a tank of them at some point in the future.

Some important considerations (if you didn't know this already):
They prefer to be in groups of 3 or more and prefer to be hand fed underwater as they are deeper dwelling fish and should not gulp air or you can run into trouble down the road. They grow to be 15 inches or larger and need a lot of space as any large cichlid does. They also can live up to 25 years. They are a big commitment fish. Hope you are prepared for the long haul!

One of my severums was afraid of me feeding him by hand, but after a couple of months of trying he does it no problem. But you can always add sinking pellets for him.

There are a lot of cute videos of people hand feeding their frontosas.
