Impossiblelah, i saw my replied to Jennifer last night, but how come this morning MIA lio. May be u didn;t treat the server well and coz my post MIA.
Jennifer : I do have 3 flowerhorns with me, my uncle gave it to me about a year ago, since he has about 20 to 30 of them. Based on my experience, and what i had learnt so far, you need to keep the water fresh. So it must be change at least one a week. The ratio will be 25% to 35% of the tank. Do not change all the water at one go. Remember to put some anticlorene into the fresh water and as what Khoo mentioned, get a reasonable powerful filter will definately help.
Out of the 3 flowerhorns, one of them is about 1 ft in size and the forehead is real big or 'swallen'. Hahaha real beatiful, also don forget to monitor and maintain the water temperature like between 30 to 32c. You can use the aquarium light (the pink color one) to warm up the water and this will also help the pigmentation/coloring of the fish. The healthy flowerhorn, the color must be sharp and eye catching.
Do not feed small fishes for flowerhorns, this will eventually coz the body color become darker and it won't be that nice, so a small prawns/shrimps will do the job and also premium quality of fish kibble.
