This is my litte fish called "red monkey". He is far from what we think flowerhorn is but he is hybrid (I guess Vieja mix). I picked him at 3 cm in LFS about 2 month ago. Now he is about 10 cm. Enjoy!

Ozzy, I guess they are mix of A.lyonsi, "barred" A.citrinellus and also Vieja species. They are very aggressive and ...weak. I saw fungus on their fins (thing I have never seen in Red Devil). I bring both to quarrantine tank today.

Yes, I cut acrylic plate with this kind of drill bit.


Small holes are for water going thru. Big holes (4 m diameter) are to stop male from going thru. Now you see both male and female are still small so I cover them with duct tape. This picture show you how the divider works:






And here is the new tank setup in 2006. The above pair was donated to my friend end of 2005 . I put their juvenilles born in August 2005 in the tank wishing they will form a pair. Enjoy Very Happy :

Do you mean Super Red Sync? Yes, they all look similar and they are hybrid. I am in Saigon, Vietnam. I bought these fish from LFS, they said they were imported from Thailand. By the way, almost CA/SA cichlid fish I have seen in Vietnam are hybrid imported from neighbor countries Sad

Ha ha, I live in world of hybrid fish, I know something. There are many kinds of instant food that help to develope flowerhorn color and nuchal hump (JBL, sumo...). The problem is that people's fish get used to live food and refuse instant food. What do they do? They leave their fish hungry. After 2 days, they feed fish again with instant food. You know what, cichlid fish eat everything when they are hungry!

About your fish, they refuse live food cause they get used to instant food. I saw one of my Red Devil does same thing. Just leave then hungry about 1 or 2 days then introduce some live food into tank.

Hope that helps,

Sebastian, sorry, your case is far from my knowledge. They seem not to be hungry... What kind of live fish that you feed them? Can you try live schrimp first because it is delicious to fish even Jag, I think?

It seems to me you got "dither fish" in your Jag tank instead of live food. I don't know much about Alburnus alburnus but guppys, I know they are very fast. I suggest you feed Jag with kind of slow swimming creatures such as schrimp. Do you have baby snake head or koi overthere? they are also slow. You can even use earth worm, grasshopper, insects...find them in the bird pet store or fishing store.
How big is your tank? My tank is only 200 litters so all fish, slow or fast, can not escape from Red Devil and therefore are all "live food"! Very Happy .

(This is out of place, sorry) I saw very beautiful Midas from Poland that you posted picture here, are they pure Amphilophus citrinellus? If yes, is there any way for me to buy from the breeder?
