Frontosa cichlids, such as the Black Widow Frontosa (Cyphotilapia frontosa), are known to thrive when kept in groups, displaying their natural behavior and spending significant time swimming in open water. This allows for easy observation and enjoyment of their captivating presence.
The Black Widow Frontosa is a variant of the Frontosa species that has been selectively bred. Unlike the typical Six Stripe Frontosa, they do not exhibit the characteristic barring pattern. Each individual Black Widow Frontosa showcases unique markings, contributing to their distinct appearance.
At our facility, we offer Unsexed Six Stripe Frontosa (Black Widow gene). While these specimens will resemble the Six Stripe Frontosa in appearance, they may display slightly different markings as they mature. These particular individuals are the result of breeding Black Widow Frontosa, and they lack the clearly defined black barring that is characteristic of the Black Widow variant.
By providing Unsexed Six Stripe Frontosa (Black Widow gene), we offer enthusiasts an opportunity to observe and appreciate Frontosa cichlids that exhibit traits from the Black Widow lineage. Please note that due to their unique genetics, the appearance of these fish may vary as they develop.
In summary, Frontosa cichlids, including the Black Widow Frontosa variant, are best kept in groups to observe their swimming behavior and appreciate their presence in open water. Our facility offers Unsexed Six Stripe Frontosa (Black Widow gene) that possess characteristics reminiscent of both the Six Stripe Frontosa and the Black Widow Frontosa, creating a unique and visually intriguing aquarium addition.
