 Vijay,
 
 I  guess  Gallery  links  to  your  album  are  not  working.
 
 
 @Clive  -  Vijay's  Fronts  were  really  cool  which  were  posted  earlier.  Maybe  after  few  months,  he  will  be  showing-off  his  Zaires  to  us.  Wink

 Thanks,  Chinkz,  They  have  grown  very  well  and  big  thanks  to  my  unorthodox  feeding.  
 Should  post  the  pic  of  of  one  of  the  dudes  with  his  hump  soon.
 Difficult  to  click  due  to  low  light  in  the  tank  and  the  fact  that  I  haven't  got  an  SLR  camera  as  yet.
 
 Sorry  for  hijacking  your  thread,  Clive.

 Would  love  to  see  the  pics  of  the  males  Sir  -  Kindly  do  post  them  when  possible.  Low  light  is  great  for  fronts  (  as  they  live  in  very  deep  waters  of  the  lake)  and  I  understand  that  it  will  be  difficult  to  take  a  good  pic  in  low  light,  with  a  normal  camera...
 
 Anyways  thanks  again  -  I'm  sure  my  bro  Clive  will  not  mind   Smile

well  I  thought  you  had  ket  them  that  the  reason  i  asked                

 
 No  problem.  If  the  above  was  the  case,  would  have  stormed  this  thread  with  loads  of  inputs  as  an  experienced  Frontosa  keeper.   Chuckle  
 
 Try  this  if  you  get  time:
 
 Cichlid  Forum  -  Frontosa  Fanatics
 
 Regards,
 Rohan.                

 
 Rohan,  Avoid  commenting  if  you  have  not  kept  the  fish  and  have  no  first  hand  knowledge.   Goggling  and  giving  links  of  foreign  websites  on  IAH  has  become  a  new  habitual  trend  for  several  members  who  have  not  even  kept  the  fish.  While  I  appreciate  efforts  to  help  the  original  poster  I  am  sure  everyone  knows  how  to  Google.  This  is  just  my  own  honest  personal  opinion  and  no  offense  or  ill  will  meant  to  you  or  anyone.                

 
 Opinions  vary.  I  do  not  think  sharing  information  (off  third  party  links  even  if  the  individual  has  not  had  enough  experience  with  the  species)  is  an  issue.  The  original  poster  obviously  would  do  their  bit  of  research  and  come  to  a  conclusion  based  on  the  inputs  EXPERTS  have  on  here.  
 
 PS:  None  of  my  inputs  on  this  thread  have  been  'conclusive'.
 
 Cheers.
 
 Regards,
 Rohan.

 wow  he  is  amazing  sir  -  I'm  speechless  -  the  pic  clearly  shows  how  much  care  and  love  he  has  been  given  -  if  I  may  say  this  -  he  and  his  colony  (assuming  he  is  the  Alpha)   is  truly  blessed  to  have  been  under  your  kind  care...  Thanks  again...
 
 Thanks  again...
 Hope  you  are  having  a  nice  Sunday  Sir...
 Lots  of  Regards  from  the  heart
