Question Fontosa

Any one here have Frontosa's?
I find these fish very interesting.. and would like to know more about them
if someone has them and raises them.
please let me know.
lets talk about them possibly post some pics of them if you
have some pics of your Frontosa

I read that the Blur Zaire is a rare one?
but I see that the Purple on is even more Rare?

i just got one of these guys like 3 weeks ago and i love it. Very interesting fish to keep and not to aggressive, so far. Mine is TINY at right around 1 inch. But they can grow to be 12 inches or so. Im excited to see when that big ugly bump starts to grow in

awsome pic....
how much did he cost?
and are you sure as to the name of him?
is he a RARE Blue? Zair?
did you get him from a lfs?
or from an individual?
