 Cyphotilapia  frontosa  (Kigoma)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Bismark)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Chaitika)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Fulwe  Rocks)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Ikola)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Isanga)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Kambwimba)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Kapampa)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Kitumba)
 Cyphotilapia  gibberosa  (Mabilibili)

 But  many  pics  and  brief  descriptions  are  there  for  each  link.  Did  you  miss  them  by  any  chance?

 Hi  Frank,
 
 As  far  as  I  know,  only  the  Burundis  are  commonly  available  here  in  India  and  I  doubt  if  anybody  has  a  non-burundi  front.  I  have  16  Burundis  in  my  212  Gallon  tank.  
 
 Here  is  a  pic  of  my  Alpha  -  
 
 and  here  is  a  video  of  my  Frontosa  Tank  -  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2faYW0IjSiY
 
 Will  watch  this  thread  to  know  if  anybody  has  a  non-burundi  frontosa  in  India...

 The  WC  Moba  colony  was  sold  off  a  few  years  back.  Dunno  who  has  it  now.
 Adip  had  sold  quite  a  few  of  the  Zaire  blue  juveniles  too.

 Hi  Abhishek  and  Beta,
 
 Wow,  thats  so  great  to  hear  !!!  Wish  I  could  get  a  few  non-burundis...
 
 Beta  Sir  -  just  wanted  to  request  you  to  kindly  let  me  know  if  it  will  be  possible  to  track  the  Moba  colony's  owner  -  would  love  to  buy  some  babies...  Sir,  also  kindly  advice  if  Adip  still  has  a  few  babies  for  sale  or  if  he  sells  them  regularly...
 
 Thanks  again  Friends  !  Wish  the  frontosa  was  more  commonly  kept  and  avilable  here  in  India...

 I  am  new  to  this  forum.   I  live  across  the  pond  in  the  USA......Houston,  Texas.   I've  kept  fronts  since  1988  and  for  the  last  8  years  have  kept  zaires.   5  years  ago  I  started  keeping  a  colony  of  wc  mobas.
 
 I  will  post  some  pics  shortly.
 
 I  keep  them  in  a  6x2x2  Oceanic  180g  glass  tank.   I  have  2m/7f.   They  have  produced  well  over  500  F1  fry  in  the  past  5  years.   I  have  a  jet  black  female  that's  been  black  for  5  years  and  spawns  fry  that  have  the  richest  blue  coloring  and  darkest,  solid  stripes  I've  seen  on  fry.   I  affectionately  refer  to  her  as  my  wc  black  moba  momma.
 
 I  have  met  a  few  of  my  Indian  friends  over  at  www.cyphos.com.   I  am  a  frequent  poster  there  under  Ron  R.   In  the  meantime  you  can  look  at  my  gallery  pics  or  do  a  search  under  Ron  R.  for  additional  pics.
 
 Right  now  I  have  7  wigglers  in  my  tumbler  and  18  F1's  from  my  wc  black  moba  momma  in  a  diy  floating  nursery.   I  keep  all  my  fishkeeping  in  my  180g  moba  tank.
 
 I  look  forward  to  contributing  to  this  forum  and  hopefully  will  see  more  moba/zaire  keepers  here  as  this  beautiful  fish  becomes  more  available  in  your  country.

 I  also  love  this  other  forum  (Monster  Fish  Keepers).  They  have  a  sticky  about  identifying  various  "strains"  of  Frontosas/Gibberosa
 
 http://www.monsterfishkeepers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=162141
 
 Now,  like  all  other  forums  (incl.  IAH),  not  all  the  information  there  might  be  accurate.  But,  it's  a  good  source  with  pictures  to  explain  differences  among  various  strains.
 
 Might  help  the  discussion  going  on  here..
 
 Cheers,
 Sid
