I am now officially the owner of a member of the family cichlidae. Just that I’m still not very sure of the species yet. Its either a frontosa (as reported by me dealer) or its a more fiesty bugger, the Aulonocara Jacobfreibergi, which it is more likely to be based on its markings and morphology. Its a juvenile and hence difficult to tell what it exactly is.
I’ve got a small twelve gallon tank (20″x10″x15″) with this fish about 4.5″ in length and already showing signs of colorations (and probably sexing too). I’m looking for a bigger tank and some tank mates to keep him company. Any and all suggestions welcome..
