    R300 for a 10 cm frontosa is good ...
    but why RED FRONTOSA, when we have so many strains available from Burundi to Samazi to zaire blues.

    Hi Reuben, red is not a pure strain. They are hybrids or line bred. In my opinion and this is "my opinion" I will not touch a red frontosa or a black widow frontosa or any type of hybrid. There are many collection points in lake Tanganyika each offering different variants. All beautiful in their own right. So if you want different...there are loads of different collection points to choose from. Good luck
