Frontosa pair - buy or not?

Postby Galc » Tue Apr 18, 2017 6:19 am

I have option to get two adult Frontosa's - one male and one female. I am afraid that one female is not enough for one male.
Is it safe to buy only one female in one male?
Would you buy it?
Should I take any attention when breeding them?

You are correct that they aren't a pairing fish. It would be better to purchase a group of juveniles, and raise a proper group.

You would have to keep a pair separated. As soon as they finish breeding, the male may want to continue, so you'd have to adopt the method of a betta breeder and be right there when they are together, ready to move the male back to his abode as soon as any trouble starts.
