Burundi's are a more practical option for alot of people, particularly if they are inexperienced or new to the Fronts / Giberosa species.
They are easy to keep and very easy to breed.

That is a magnificent fish! Do frontosa males get long trailers like gibberosa? The only thing I would add to this bloke is some trailers. Were they nipped off at some point?

I would like to try Burundi one day just to see a Cyphotilapia hold fry. Zaire gibberosa can be challenging in that regard.

My young alpha male. Approximately 5.5-6" Sorry for bad lighting, I have a cheap diy led setup. Hopefully he grows into the stud that the one Matto posted is.

I love the look of them and keep them for the hump, it gives them a unique look, almost like a grumpy grandpa lol, also they have great color as well, as good as some zaire I've seen imo.

not sure why this keeps popping up.. but i did not go this direction. I ended up going with a colony of 12 WC kasangas. They have settled in nicely.

It's a poll, every time someone votes it pops up whether they post a reply or not.

A quality Burundi is a beautiful fish. Problem is to many of us are jaded against them do to poor breeding of them over the years. We need to take care of preventing that poor breeding on all the other fish we enjoy.
