Hey guys.... I have a spare tank which is a 73 cm by 41 cm by 46 cm.... which translates to a 2 foot 4 inches, 36 gallon tank. I am planning to get 6 juvie fronts for the time being and putting them into this tank.... and I am planning to put them into a 150 cm by 60 cm by 70 cm, which translates into a 5 foot, 165 gallon tank when they grow up later.

I have a few questions that needs answered and I was wondering if you guys can help me with this.

1) Is the growout tank big enough to growout fronts and how many juvies can I grow out in there?

2) What kind of decor should I use? Should I leave the tank bare or put crushed coral/sand substrate and some rocks in there and plants?

3) For my future main tank.... how many fronts do you guys recommend I am able to put in there?

sorry to say but your grow out tank is very small for even juvies. it would have to be a very short term thing. imo you it would probably be best to wait until you have your larger tank to get any fronts. most would agree that 6 foot long 18 inch deep tanks are the minimum size for frontosa. usually you can comfortably house 8 adults in a tank this size. there have been a few people who have gotten away 5 foot tanks though. 6 fronts in a 5 footer would be my best guess. most of the time 5 and 6 foot tanks are about the same price. if you can swing it i would recommend a 6 foot tank. hope this helps

Show me a cichlid that isn't hungry, and I'll show you a cichlid that isn't healthy.
