AWESOME. finally good to see another Flowerhorn keeper. Not many here sadly. Not as many as Monster Fish Keeper at least but this forum is WAY better organized. Beautiful looking fish. How many inches long is it, not including the tail fin? I finally got myself a FH as well about 2 months ago. Feeding him Beef Heart and Grand Sumo Red mostly. Growing nice and the hump is getting bigger too. Post more pictures of your tank! Like substrate, hiding spots if any, maybe 'toys' or maybe Tank Mates? (:

This is my FH. Named him Sushi. Water is a little murky because he's just had his Beef Heart, but his water is always crystal clear. I don't get charged for water in my apartments, so I do a 75% water changes every other day. I only have a 40 Gallon Tall right now, but I have a 150 Gallon Canister Filter and a 50 Gallon Power Head. Pristine water.

They say a varied diet is the best. Any tank mates for now?
Mine killed about 4 mbuna cichlids. When they were being butt heads I would put them in the flowerhorn tank and they'd calm down quick. But then the FH would get them. So no more using that as a time out tank. I have a common pleco that's about an inch longer than my FH but he still bugs him. Hopefully he'll get used to him and leave him be.

Yes a varied diet is best to promote health and also for the fh to live longer. Mine got a tank mate but divided...
