Flower horn question?

Is it possible to put a flower horn in with true African Cichlids?

No I wouldnt mix the two. Without even knowing tank size it's unlikely any "Africans" would stand a chance against a flower horn.

Bichir bro is right, and to expand on that flowerhorns should not be kept with anything at all. They are man made hybrids who become predatory with size.

Also African cichlids should really only be with African cichlids.

They're awesome looking fish, I had one triple in size in about 4 months. Nasty attitude though.

Flowerhorn should be strictly kept alone.
