 Need  help  here.
 
 Now  which  frontosa  mouth  broods  it's  eggs  the  father  or  the  mother?
 
 or  tell  me  they  are  not  mouth  brooders  but  cave  spawners.
 
 One  of  my  2  adult  frontosa  has  gone  AWOL  for  the  past  week  -  10  days.
 He/she  has  not  jumped  out  of  the  tank.  No.  I  am  sure  of  that.  Did  not  find  a  large  frontosa  to  salt  anywhere  in  my  balcony.
 
 I  suspect  it  is  below  a  huge  rock  in  the  tank.  Does  not  come  out  for  food,  at  least  that's  what  I  think.
 
 Now  do  frontosa  parents  transfer  the  brood  to  each  other's  mouth?  Then  the  parents  may  be  alternating  for  food.  I  don't  think  this  is  the  case.
 
 A  long  time  absence  like  this  one  should  mean  it's  brooding  eggs  right?
 
 No,  it's  not  dead  in  the  tank.
 
 How  long  with  this  AWOL  continue?
 
 I  don't  want  to  move  the  rock  and  cause  a  disaster  in  case  the  fish  is  mouth  brooding.

 Fronts  are  maternal  mouthbrooders...so  if  your  female  is  the  one  in  hiding,  there  is  a  fair  chance  she  is  holding...I  do  not  think  moving  the  rock  will  cause  a  major  disaster  Very Happy  atleast  you  will  have  peace  of  mind.  :wink:

 That  one  piece  of  rock  weighs  over  a  100  kgs  and  is  in  3  feet  deep  water.
 
 If  there  is  no  disaster  to  the  frontosa  and  the  eggs  there  surely  will  be  a  major  one  with  my  back  and.....  :wink:
 
 Like  the  Indians  in  Louis  L'amour  books  I'll  wait.  :lol:

   :lol:    :lol:    :lol:  
     I'm  just  hoping  she  is  really  carrying.There  are  reports  all  over  the  net  about  how  difficult  they  are  to  breed,and  how  long  they  take  to  mature!!!If  this  one  is  indeed  carrying,there  is  a  lot  to  hope  for,for  all  other  frontosa  keepers!  Smile  
     Madan,you  will  have  to  figure  out  a  way  to  get  hold  of  the  female,and  give  her  some  maternity  leave  in  another  tank.you  could  try  reducing  water  levels  so  you  can  dip  your  hands  in.Better  still,get  into  the  tank  and  trap  her.Its  worth  the  try!
