It’s been a good while since we’ve done an update on the flower horn cichlid. Unfortunately, several months back he was suffering from internal parasites, which made him stop eating, thus losing a lot of weight. His “horn” started to shrink quickly, which alarmed me because much like how a gecko stores fat in its tail, this fish does it in the “horn” above its head. Once that’s all gone, that’s pretty much the end. So we got some tablets from the fish shop, which thankfully helped! He has recovered and is back to his active self.. despite his body colors - That’s still messed up, unfortunately.

  • And that flowerhorn colour type in Indonesia(and maybe another place too) as golden base. The colour will change in random condition, from standard colour into the golden base color, if you luck, sometimes the flowerhorn that have colour mutating have their horn grow more bigger than before, and the pearl on their body become more visible or appear on the area that there is no any pearl before. Hopefully your flowerhorn become like what i type before.

  • I think your flowerhorn is MOLTING and i think its a GOLDEN BASE FADER , means the blue/black will fade and replace with gold and pinkish color and that process is called molting here XD

  • Just submerge the whole hose so that it is completely filled with water. Plug one end with your finger and pull that end out and down into the sink. Gravity will pull the water through the hose from the portion still in the tank. Just make sure the end in the sink is lower than the end in the tank.

  • 6:43 hey bro, my fish is also pooping white stuff, it's the same as your fish, but instead it was smaller than yours, so i'm afraid it would die the next day because i'm a newbie, i just bought him/her ( idk what is my flowerhorn's gender) 2 days ago and he/she's been pooping this white stuff and i was worried so the next day i clean his tank using the same method as yours, and after that i try to cut the pellet size to smaller so it could drown, and he/she didnt went to the surface, so i feed him/her in the bottom of the aquarium and it's been 3 days now since i take care of my flowerhorn

  • You should get a hose we’re you can squeeze a little thing, I guess and it makes a suction. My dad has one and it’s super helpful when you need to take the water out.

  • If you don't get all the algae out, it grows faster, making you have to clean it a lot more often, or that's how every fish tank I've ever owned has been. I saw people here saying only clean the filter once a year? That's absolutely insane to me.

  • Dude. Turn off runescape. 1. Its a terrible game. 2. Just read below. Stick to your basic spiders and such. Your failing that fish. Filters, tank, water changes. All wrong. Give it away, or take some advice from a aquarium keeper. Not your uncles fish breeding farm out the backyard in rainwater tanks. Id seriously be embarrassed. Posting this tank online. Cancer in a tank.

  • Just a little tip to help his health , stop doing 100% water changes and leave some bacteria on the tank walls , if it's water change day don't bother cleaning the walls of the tank, your water holds beneficial bacteria aswell and when you scrup off the bacteria off the walls and take all the water away your pretty much going to be restarting your cycle , the only thing that's left cycled is your filter, I keep 4 kamfas and I do spot cleans every day and water changes every 4-7 days about 20-50% new water gets changed , 2 tanks split in half with dividers - 30gallons each - 2 kamfas in each , I run my temps at 84° for my flowerhorns cause low temperatures are at more Risk of sickness and parasites, also every water change that is done I'm dosing flufal brand salt to the water , I like that brand cause it's easy to dose accordingly and always had good luck with it (extra precautionary) have been successful with that for many many years!! , Hope you can use some of this to help him!! He's absolutely stunner would hate to see you lose him!

  • I suggest getting him in a little bigger of a tank. Also make sure your temp is around 82 degrees f to 85 degrees f. Also feed him good quality pellets that are specifically for flowerhorns. There are foods that help with color and his nuchal hump. Here's the kind i feed my flowerhorn. I would also buy s sponge filter so you can keep the beneficial bacteria in the tank. I'd stop cleaning out his filter with tap water because you're killing off the beneficial bacteria needed for a cycled tank.
