I am not a Frontosa expert but I am not sure what you have. Those don't lloook anything like whats in Jojos WC Moba tank. Looks like a mixture of something...But like I said I am not experianced as some with fronts i only have messed with the Burndi.

Well i got this off craiglist, and when i asked him his answer was "i got it from someone in Allen tx when it was 4inch, and all i remember was its an f1", so im hoping jojo could tell, and hope that this isnt a crossbreed, even though its a nice frontosa. i want to no what he is :P, hes blue is really dark.

I need a clear face shot! Please take photos at an angle so the flash does not bounce off the screen.

Taking shots at 45 degree angle and not in the corner should accomplish clearer results...

You suck in taking pictures Ricky lol! Side view Shots is what I need...I need to see body shape and face.

Take hot pics like these Frontosa. 690297

Frontosa. DSCN3804
Frontosa. DSCN3596

If you can turn off the tank light and just rely on your flash it might produce a better pic.
It Might be zaire but a tanzanian or Zambian will sometimes have coloration like this one so I am not sure. My initial guess would be Zaire. Where and who did you buy it from? Did the seller told you the source of this fish?

Still a bad pic hahaha! Nevertheless it looks to me that it is a Tanzanian probably Mpimbwe, very nice Blue on that front though!

IVE SEEN BISMARK THAT BLUE ALSO HAVE SEEN MOBA THAT BLUE. THEY CAN GET VERY BLUE, ALMOST PURPLE. I HAVE HAD COLONIES OF MPIMBWE AND NEVER GOT THAT BLUE. IVE HAD WC AND F1. MPIMBWE ARE A MUCH LIGHTER BLUE, ALMOST SKY BLUE. IM STICKING WITH BISMARK MAYBE ZAIRE MOBA. I HAVE ZAIRE MOBA JUVIES AT AROUND 3.5 TO 4.5 INCHES THAT ARE A LIL LIGHTER AND GETTING DARKER EVERY INCH. GREAT BUY. VERY IMPRESSIVE FISH.
