Default Frontosa with two featherfins

Here is a video of my 210 gallon with 3m6f kitumba fronts, 3m9f mpimbwe fronts, 2m2f Ophthalmotilapia nasuta kipili gold, 1m1f Cyathopharynx furcifer orange face along with two archer fish. The fronts mind their own with these featherfins but the substrate that i have is not going to trigger any breeding with the featherfins as i have crushed coral with undergravel filter. I'm willing to sell both colonies of fronts if anyone is interested.

Enjoy

You going to sell those beautiful Kits and Mpimbwes? That Alpha male Kit is awesome . Man your crazy sellin that colony . But if there good enough reasons, I would understand.I think you said before that your Kits were good breeders too.

My reason for selling them is my new love for petrochromis. I've kept fronts for 3 years now and i'm fairly new to the petrochromis game. The key for them is to overcrowd,

Have you ever got any fry's from the groups? If yes, how do you determine what they are?

Yes i have and they are a cross breed. I've had these guys in the same tank since Feburary 2010 ever since i bought a 210 gallon tank. Before i had them in separate 125 gallons but i use those for my other fish. Only the mpimbwe females produced fry for me and i sold them off on craigslist locally. The crazy part about the fry was that they had very dark blue colors like my kitumba fry which is neat because they came out of a female mpimbwe. I don't plan on keeping these fronts so i placed them all in the same tank. I just need to sell them to make room for petros.

That is a awesome setup you got going on. you have a lot of filtration I see Love the Fronts neat you have them combined at least you will be able to tell them apart. I wanted to do Mpimbwe w/ Kigoma's & some Zaire's still might one day after seeing your tank .
