I started out keeping Malawi cichlids... bred them.. loved it... found tanganyika... found frontosa.. got a burundi... 6 months or so later, I HAVE A MOBA COLONY!!

I got lucky. A breeder i came to know was getting rid of his colony.. 1 WC Male 1 WC Female 1 F1 Male 2 F1 Female. i won't even tell you what i got them for (cheap!). Had em for a few weeks now and all i can say is, if you love fronts, you HAVE to keep Mobas at least once in your life.

some of the main differences are the color of the fins and body and the mask on the face. there is quite a bit of difference between fronts from different collection points if you look close.

thanks everyone!

they're in a 125, 3 females are about 7 inch the males i would say are 8.5 and 9 inches. i was worried at the start i might have to get a bigger tank but they seem more than comfortable - i think mainly because i've got lots of big caves for them to claim and play around in.

differences in front/gibb types are shape, color, striping, and definitely personality IME
