Saying a flowerhorn looks like a hybrid is like saying a camry looks like a car. All flowerhorns are hybrids.

I thought that too because he fights with my tilapia quite a bit they exactly the same size and at 1st I figured that's wat it was but then I noticed that even his fins have changed to a whitish pink as well lol

plenty of room doesnt mean they will stay apart. thats territory and manliness stirring up the tank (if they are both boys lol) and they arent gonna be in good acquantance unless they have something that will break up the territory - or stop them making it, like overstocking.

I tried dither fish I bought a handfull of tiger barbs that I thought were too big to b food an hopefully break up the tension in the tank but as soon as I left the room for a cpl.hrs they were all gone so idk wat to do short of removing him from the tank and the only other tank I have is a 10g with my betray and a pair of brichardi

noot what i meant lol. i actually meant, maybe get another flowerhorn or a large cichlid of similar variety to your current fish, so its all dispersed. in a 150, id be happier to have 5 big cichlids as opposed to 2 spaced out ones (for looks and aggression purposes!).
thats just me, and thats just a theory x
