I do see the Trimac in it but it also looks FH. I say you are right on with the parents it looks Trimac X Flowerhorn cross.

Nice fish Very Happy

Spine deformation has nothing to do with the classification of flowerhorns. There are many Cichlidae that also have this problem diagnosis. And there are many flowerhorns that in fact look normal in terms of body structure. Deformations in many species comes about due to the genetic makeup and the attribution of the the X and Y chromosomes in both the parents.

At any rate, your specimen here looks to be a hybrid of some sort, it certainly has a stronger Trimac bloodline in it but does have some features that would certainly make it a flowerhorn.

i know that spine deformation has nothing in classification but i just added my observation ,i also know that for example in asia fhs with spine deformation are expensive and people want to buy them but i'm a purist and i think that such kind of fishes should be eliminate when they are young they should be used like a food this is onlly my opinion Wink Twisted Evil

I've raised this fish ever since it was a fry. I THINK his father was a trimac, but his mother is a flowerhorn. This fish was given to me as a fry, so I am unsure. Please help me identify him.



Do you have any pics of what it looked like as a juvenile? I'm trying to figure out what Flowerhorns look like before they develop. Anybody have any pics?
