I took a gamble on an unidentified/mislabeled 1-1.5" fry months ago. Ended up being a Flowerhorn. I personally have nothing against hybrids, and enjoy some FH's, but I would never recommend one in a tank with other fish. Once the fry I bought reached 3" or so he became aggressive. I traded him to a buddy who put him in a divided 29g, FH on one side, and a green terror grow out on the other side. He came home Tuesday and somehow the Flowerhorn had gotten to the GT and killed it. They can be cool fish, but are very aggressive. Best left solo as a wet pet IMO.

Yea they are ugly, but I noticed they have their own ugly way about them , but people are buying them and they're not cheap!
I haven't seen one on this site or any other site, but the guy at the lfs said if you get a mated pair, which is hard to do. He told me that the female kills the male if she does not like him and she is very vicious at that. A customer of his tried 4 males and his female killed them all, one at a time , but the fish store guy said his breeding techniques were wrong. That's as much as I know about these fish, but they have some amazing colors though.

You have any other suggestions to look at in the fish world, eventually I will keep other specie's but for now just curious what we can keep, or afford !!!

Clem.

Glad others chime in on the flowerhorns as I have never kept them.
They can be so very colorful.
For additional stock to your 90 Clem give 'roseline sharks' Denison barbs a look.
A 90 is min IMO but they would be a great community fish to go with your stock.
I have 12 in my 180.
