Not the best picture but we are the proud parents of conjoined frontosas. They appear to be joined in the middle and both heads were eating.

I'm not sure a serious congenital defect is something to be proud of. These poor things should be euthanized immediately; clove oil is a humane method.

I had a pair of blue dolphin (Malawi) fry that were like that when I stripped the mom many years ago. If I recall correctly they died a few days later.

I'm not sure why, but this isn't completely uncommon for frontosa types. I've seen, or heard of it a number of times. They never survive.
