To begin, Flowerhorns are very tough and easy fishes to care for, being very tolerant to water and temperature changes. We have experienced that they are an ideal aquatic pet and become incredibly domestic.
Flowerhorns are hybrid fishes, man made, and are not found in the wild. As a result breeding our Triple A grade flowerhorns, may not necessarily produce the same fish. I am sure some of you guys are familiar with this.
They are capable of growing up to 12 inches with a lifespan of up to 12 years. Different types of Flowerhorns include:
It is recommended that they be kept singly in atleast a 55 Gallon tank with proper filtration. Being aggressive, they should not have any tank mates.
However, we have been able to get them to coexist with peacocks, possible as they have been together since the Flowerhorn was around 3 inches.
