Is it just me or do frontosas have about as much personality as a rock?

My fronts are slow moving and graze around the tank. Very peaceful to watch...and when I move closer to the tank (and they see me), they start moving against the glass begging for food. Love them... they are one of my favorites.

Hong Grab a Krill and try to hand feed them. Mpimbwes are like dogs, you can hand pet them while you lure them with Krill. I'm curious... 690297

Niice...I'll try that this weekend. I've been doing damage control all day transfering sick fish and treating my 40 Breeder. I was sick all last week so I didn't take care of my BN tank... apparently one of the sponge filters got clogged up from their endless pooping...it stopped filtering and since there's hundreds of them...water quality went to poop ...ended up with a tank full of Ich. cursing

I have a group of Blue Zaire fronts. One huge male and six females with him. As for boring, I must disagree. Mine are always swimming around eating, chasing and the male, always wanting to breed and flashing this mind blowing purple blueish color. Also I have a group of Hai Reef Peacocks in there with them. One male and 7 females. They are housed in an 130 gallon aquarium. Try to keep some peacocks or another type of cichlids with them as long as the others are not too aggressive. A huge flower pot for the male will entice him to breed and go after the females instead of just lying there. The fronts are such gentle giants! I thought the male front ( 12 inches) will swallow my peacocks like they were candy!! Nope!!! They have been housed together now for a better 5 years now with no problems at all.

LOL. I was wondering the same thing. Picked up a few from a LFS this week and....well...was surprised they were so "laid back".
