Sexing Frontosa’s

Postby Luhann » Thu Jun 25, 2020 12:50 pm

Hi,

Any help on sexing Frontosa? In the pic I have 2 Burundi Fronts.

I suspect the smaller one is a male given the long fins, the bigger one I just purchased 2 days ago. I think its a female, she is 3 years old.

Thanks

Frontosa are somewhat hard to sex and you can't tell by looking at the fins. Here's a link that I think can help: https://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/frontosa_sexing.php

You can also check out the following link Male or Female for more pics and how to do it.

Be aware that sometimes you will need to wait until a female has laid eggs at least one time before you will be able to see the difference more easily.
