Not sure how to put this, but I'll try my best. I have 8 Kigoma Frontosas and would like to put them in an 180 gallon with 1 Male Blue Dolphin and 3-4 Females. All these fish are 1.5-3" long.

I cannot locate a 2nd breeder in my area for Kigoma Frontosas. The same breeder has about 2-3 generations of Kigomas. If i were to buy a male uncle or grand uncle of my current frontosas to breed with some of my females, would that be a good idea? Would the genes be strong?

I'd look for a male from a different blood line to avoid birth defects from inbreeding. Maybe check cichlidsandherps.net. they usually have kigs in stock.....and plenty of other good stuff. :mrgreen:

Quality of your fry will suffer as inbreeding continues. Personally I have been keeping brichardi for years and they continue to breed for me. But I am guilty of throwing some juveniles into the tank to keep the size of the colony up. And I can see that years of doing that has given me some brichardi with weird mouths or misshapen heads. So it is always best to get a new male for your existing females.
