The Frontosa Cichlid, Cyphotilapia frontosa, is endemic to the African rift lake Tanganyika. Like other freshwater fish from the rift lakes, aquarium water should be buffered to a specific pH level. For Tanganyikan Cichlids this range is 7.4 to 9.4 and several products are available to handle this requirement. Frontosa shipped may be of 6 bar or 7 bar variety. If one is preferred over the other, please let us know when ordering and we will do our best. C. frontosa has a carnivorous diet made up of small fish and invertebrates. When spawning, females carry the young in their mouth.
