Oh yea. Mine was only sixty. Around here, the only ones that are worth anything are the older trade-ins. All the juvies are basically worthless. So, thankfully I got mine at a good price. They got in another one roughly a week after I bought mine that was a very poor quality. Georgia sucks when it comes to FHs. So many are miserable and turn black.

Btw, a new picture I just took. He is a little brat when it comes to my phone. This is the best one I could get.

It all depends on the breed, females usually dont get big kok's (hump on head)..
Males get them and some grow huge and some dont grow that big, depends on the breed and its parents..


That lil titanium is adorable!!!!

Ohh. I think the hump makes them even more interesting. And that's a beautiful fish. I love the colors

Females for the most part don't, but apparently it is getting more common for females to have a small kok.

Tarpon: If you like the look of a larger kok, then I wouldn't recommend a FH like mine. He won't get a very large one and I think it is more fitting for him. Red Dragon's normally get a good size kok and are on the lower end of the price scale. I would say that if you really are wanting a FH, join a FH-specific forum. You will find loads and loads of information on there and will be a lot more credible than a basic google search.

We had a lot of small FHs imported from Thailand in our auction last year and they sold for next to nothing. Nobody wanted one, myself included.

It'd probly be a year or two before I could get another tank for one anyways. I'm about to have to deal with moving out, what I'm gonna do for the rest of my life etc.

If you knew anything about flowerhorns you should know that small ones dont sell for much no matter what country u get it from..and as far as you not wanting one thats ur choice, and my feelings arent hurt cuz u said it.

I don't know what the small size has to do with nobody wanting one other than you don't know what the final colorations or patterns will be. But I think that's cool bc you get to watch it change. I don't see how that post was relevant at all
