ID Flowerhorn pretty please

Would someone please ID this flowerhorn? He's another one of the "big, scary fish" in our store. We're thinking about listing him online somewhere, so we need to know what kind of flowerhorn he is. Thanks in advance! I can get more photos tomorrow if needed.

I work at a small pet store as a fishkeeper. Fish I care for include various bettas, tetras, danios, angelfish, sharks, guppies, mollies, platys, swordtails, gouramis, goldfish, cichlids, rainbowfish, plecos, catfish, barbs, and a few big (scary) fish: jardini arowana, flowerhorn cichlid, alligator gar, green terror cichlid, pike cichlid.

Impossible to do that as ALL flowerhorns are man made hybrids.

They are usually a cross of red devil cichlids (typically Amphilophus labiatus) and trimac cichlids (Amphilophus trimaculatus).

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

+one.
I would list the fish as Adult Male Flowerhorn.
Is handsome fish and adult's in my neck of the woods ,would go for 50.00 to 75.00 U.S. dollar's.
They pay crazy prices for these in eastern countries.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

I'm a little late to the party here. You guys are incorrect, it is far from impossible to tell what kind of Flowerhorn he has. There are many different strains.

That looks like a lower grade Kamfa to me.
