My Alpha male Burundi

I got this male last Dec from Aquabeek, he's an F1 about 8" long now and has stunning colouration. Sorry about the poor picture it was taken on my iphone under natural daylight. I have 7 Burundi and 17 leptosoma. The Cyps and Burundi have been together since they were very young, they add an extra dimention to the tank and so far they get on really well.

Thanks for your comments. Some great news, i was just looking closely at my Alpha male hiding in his usual place behind his favorite rock when out popped a tiny Burundi ! I thought one of the females was holding a few weeks ago but wasn't really sure, turns out she was and spat them into a gap between the rocks ! question now is will they be ok ? Frontosa are the most amazing fish ! If only i had an eight ft tank hmmmm !!

Nice fronti. I love these fish. Amazed they havent snacked on the cyps. In the lake they are a main food source. Any spawning yet?
