Cichlasoma trimaculatus, Cichlasoma festae, and the Jingang Blood Parrot are the three South American cichlids thought to be cross-bred to form what is known as the Flower Horn cichlid. This interesting looking cichlid has become quite popular amongst aquarists all over the world, and its popularity is only increasing.

Coloration ranges from shades of purple to pink to red, with blue iridescent speckling and interesting black markings that often look like "flowers" or Chinese characters. The shape of these markings are what make many Flower Horns so desirable. Another desirable quality is the size and shape of the nuchal hump, or the big bump on its head. The bigger the hump, it is said, the more luck the owner will have.

Because of their genetic origins, the Flower Horn is a very aggressive and territorial fish. It is best to keep them by themselves. They require plenty of open swimming areas as well as decent hiding areas amongst rocks and driftwood. Feed them a variety of foods such as flake, pellet, and occasional frozen meaty foods.

Please note: The fish pictured above is a representation of this variety. Due to genetic variations in hybrid species like this one, the fish you receive may have slightly different coloration than the one pictured. Call or email a livestock representative for more information.
