1 Frontosa

Postby Toby3001 » Fri Sep 25, 2020 10:57 am


I have a 2 and a half-inch Frontosa in a 40-gallon tank alone. I was wondering since I am relatively new to the hobby what other fish can go with the Frontosa in the 40-gallon tank.

In the future, I will get a bigger tank however now since the Frontosa is a baby I am starting with 40 gallons.

A couple of placidochromis phenochilus 'star sapphire cichlids' same size as the Frontosa would be peaceful enough, but you'll need to get a larger tank within a few months. A much larger tank (6-foot minimum) if you plan to keep the Frontosa long-term.
