There are the following types or groups: Frontosa and Gibberosa . A good way to remember how to tell them apart is that frontosa have eye stripes and gibberosa have eye mask and tend to be bluer. There are several variants not listed here but these are the most commonly found :

frontosa:
Burundi (6 stripes, the most common and least expensive, eye stripes)
Kigoma ((7 stripes, eye stripes)

Gibberosa:

Tanzanian
mpimbwe
Samazi
(there are several other tanz species but mpimbwe and samazi are most common, eye mask, bluer colors)

Zambian:
Nangu
Sumbu
Chaitika
(looks exactly like mpimbwe and other tanzanians, nice blue colors, eye mask , does not seem as popular as tanz and zaire and burundi, very few people keep them anymore)

Zaire:
Moba
Kapampa
Kitumba
mikula
(there are more than these, but these are the most commonly found. Zaires are the most intense blue and highest cost. Eye mask, High demand)
