Frontosa question

You're not going to find Kalolo anywhere on a map, it's just a name. Kalolo's are collected in Tanzania just below Karema.

These started to show up in the UK in 2010/2011 if I remember right and are rarely brought into the US if at all.

I'm sure there are more in the US than that but I don't doubt they were expensive.

The info on them is spoty at best, you may try looking in some of the Uk based fish forums. I can't imagine they'd be too different to keep from the more readily available fronts.

It's just like any fish it's a new locational variant with slightly different coloration. It's rare and expensive because it doesn't get exported much likely do to the fact it may be hard to collect/find or breed.
