I have a frontona mixed with several peacocks. They are great together. Frontosa is always just chillin. The peacocks seam to be growing faster than the frontosa. Check out livefishdirect.com they have some super cool peacocks. Just kind of expensive for shipping.

Yeah all the dish are healthy. Some fish don't look super like the picture, but everything is still alive, they have some super cool peacocks tho. Just buy in bulk. The shipping was like 34 dollars

What's not to like about frontosa nuchal humps?

The nuchal humps of the southern frontosa/gibberosa variants isn't as pronounced as this burundi's is.



The frontosa in the link below tried to eat its peacock tank mate:
I guess he got tried of Krill... - Cyphos.com

90 has the same footprint as a 75. id shoot for 6ft min if you want to keep the front. A full grown front will make a 4ft look small.

Like the posted link says, frontosa are predators that feed on smaller fish in lake tanganyika, I'd be careful
