Friendship between Frontosa and Calvus

Postby F.POLAT » Fri May 09, 2008 7:29 pm

Hi,
What kind of spesies can stand with Frontosas in tank that question that frequiently asked.
Same question can be asked for Calvus.I want to give an example that could be a useful for understanding Frontosa Blue Zaire Moba
and Black Calvus can live together. When you look at he first photo can be seen that the big Frontosa moves towards Calvus, that scenes is a frightening one. But at the next photo you can see the Frontosa while it is feeding with Calvus, and also this is fantastic scene.

Fronts and Altolamprologous (whether compressiceps or calvus) are terrific tankmates for Fronts, as long as the Alt cannot fit in the Front's mouth. :thumb:

It largely depends on the attitude of the frontosa in the aquarium. It seems to work most of the time, but if a big male gets provoked, it will end up rather ugly for the calvus, no matter his/her size.
