Remarks: Frontosa appreciate being kept in groups and will spend a considerable amount of time swimming in open water - where you can view them easily!
The Black Widow Frontosa (Cyphotilapia frontosa) are a man made variant of Frontosa. They will not have the typically baring as Six Stripe Frontosa and they all look very different with their markings.
We do offer Unsexed Six Stripe Frontosa (Black Widow gene). These will look more like the Six Stripe Frontosa, but may have some slightly different markings as they mature. These come from breeding the Black Widow Frontosa and they are ones that do not have the distinctly different black barring that the Black Widow have.
