My Monster Flowerhorn

Recommended Posts

That’s him, the bad boy, almost 13 inches, 2 years old.

That’s his real colour.

Dude I don't think I have seen one so big before. Is that the biggest they get or bigger. What does it eat?

Thanks Koko!

It is challenging to clean the tank glasses from inside, he is quite aggressive, bite me couple of times and I am telling you his teeth are very sharp. 

Usualy I feed him with big variety of pellets for cichlids.

The tank is really small for him, 55 gal. and he still is growing. The water quality is very well maintained, the oxygen level is great, the only big issue is the tank space.

Beautiful fish. Hopefully you can upgrade his tank soon for him. I've heard that the smacking into stuff like that is a sign of boredom.

Definitely the tank is already smaller for him but one thing is for sure, so far he doesn’t show any signs of boredom. He is so active and getting more aggressive. Koko is right, one day he will get me lol! Today he almost rip a piece of my hand when I was vacuuming the button. Getting smarter, now he doesn’t attack the vacuuming pipe, he is aiming my hand lol!

A year ago look what he did to some of the aquarium equipment lol!

WOWsers

Does he have any tank mates?

Flower horns are usually kept alone like Bettas. They're quite predatorial and unfriendly towards more other fish. I am nearly sure this one has no tank mates since he is huge.
