I just picked up 6 small frontosa ( about 1 inch) at a local fishstore in dearborn Michigan. I think I got a real good deal, I only paid $4.50ea plus they gave me 2 for free :)
They are too small for my 90gallon right now so Im growing them out a bit in my fry tank that I normally use for swords and other live bearer fish.
I will post some pics soon, maybe some one can help me figure out what kind they are.

Congrats on your new fronts! I have never seen them that cheap in a store. Usually to get that kind of price you need to buy from a breeder, and you probably have to buy larger numbers. That's why I started with fifty in a 240G, and kept selling fish as they grew to eventually get down to the eight I now have.

You do know that they will outgrow your 90G in a little over a year?

thanks for link, I will read over the info.

*** always wanted fronts, and at that price I couldnt resist. I will have to start saving for a bigger tank, plus it gives me a good reason for a bigger tank! I just took a couple a of pics I will have them posted here soon.

On a side note I also purchsed 3 chinese batfish, *** never seen them before in a fishstore only pics online from time to time. but after reading up on them I think I should have just left them in the store, they dont seem to be well suited for aquarium life.

You may also want to read some of the Frontosa articles in the CF Library:

I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to do. I want Fronts, but only a 55 open to put them in and feel the same way about giving myself a reason to buy a bigger tank. Worst case, large Fronts sell for a pretty penny.
