Care Tips For Your Flowerhorn

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:


Live Food

Tank Dynamics

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.

Drop us your inquiries and concerns in comments below or even just to share your own tank with us.

We love hearing from you all!

Tantrums: Flowerhorn Introduced Into New 65 Gallon Tank.

Whats up Fish People! A couple days back, we installed one of our new acrylic aquarium packages at a client. The usual had to happen, tank prepped, and placed to cycle. Filter floss was the desired filtration media.

The Flowerhorn was introduced today………a massive 8 inch DRAGON. He immediately settled to his new environment. Only one catch! ……. moments in, all that was notice was all decor i.e. plants, structures etc….was being tossed. It was very humongous and in this case we had to make the adjustments for him, but he was very happy with his new home.
