Black Widow Frontosa  

The black widow frontosa is a german line-bred variant of the burundi frontosa. They have been in the hobby many years and are quite popular amongst aquarists who have no intention to breed. They are a unique addition to a frontosa show tank. The photos include a young adult female holding a clutch of eggs.

The mixed moba/black widow tank (photo #4) is from a customer who bought both moba and black widow fry from us in 2019.
