  1. Tank Size: Provide a spacious tank of at least 125 gallons for a single Black Frontosa, as they can grow quite large.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable conditions with a temperature range of 74-80°F (23-27°C), a pH level of 7.8-9.0, and moderately hard to hard water with good mineral content.

  3. Filtration: Effective filtration is crucial for water quality and oxygenation. Consider a canister filter or other robust filtration systems.

  4. Aquascape: Mimic their natural rocky habitat with plenty of caves and hiding spots created with rocks and driftwood. Subdued lighting is appreciated.

  5. Tank Mates: Black Frontosas are generally peaceful but can be territorial during breeding. Choose tankmates carefully, focusing on other large, peaceful fish from Lake Tanganyika.

  6. Diet: They are carnivores, accepting high-quality pellets, live or frozen foods like shrimp and small fish, and occasional vegetable matter.
