Try Southeast Cichlids, LAA or Toms Tanganyikans. They all import and maybe they can get them for you.

Thanks. Southeast Cichlids hasnít been able to get them. LAA seems like their list hasnít been added to in a long time. Iíll give Tom a try.

Try rarefishusa.com, I don't think they have them right now but they have them on their price list. Maybe they can get them for you.

I just saw a nice frontosa tank with blue Dolphins, Julie's and leilupi's. Another tank had some blood parrots too which made the tank very colorful. Just a couple of ideas.

Thanks! I definitely want to stick with all Tangs. Iím hoping to find some Julieís that are tough, if possible. Any idea how many to add? Just a pair, a trio, a half dozen?

Are the Leilupiís too hyper for Fronts?

Final question (for now ) How many Fronts should I end up with on a mixed 375 gallon tank? Right now theyíre all small 2Ē fish.

Julie's and leilupi's need to have plenty of smaller rock work and little caves for them to feel secure and hide. Calvus, comps and female fronts also like a place of refuge. I'm not an expert but I would think 12-15 fronts 3/12 ratio along with 6 calvus, 6 Julie's, 6 leilupi's, 6 Synodontis Petrocola cats and a couple of gnathochromis if you can find them. Check out the frontosa tank on YouTube, https://youtu.be/PaMB58KQEzA. Frontosa, tricoti's and comps. It's a nice tank but it seems the tricoti are insecure and hide. Notice all the plants, looks mostly like Anubius.
