      Hello everyone,

      I recently picked up these frontosas from my LFS. The guy there says they Zaire Blue. Some of my friends say they are not. Can you look at the pics and tell me what variety they are?

      I don't know about Frontosa, but I have to say, they are very attractive fish you have. Nice!

      Definitely dont look like Zaire. Hopefully you didn't spend Zaire money. It's hard to tell. Did they say if they are all from the same clutch?

      That's about 55 usd so that is a very good deal. They are expensive here. I bought 3 baby mpimbwe a month ago for 60 each. About 1.5 inch. That's my older Male in picture

      That is an orange blotch peacock. I've seen people asking 500 plus for wild caught or f1 Zaires.
