Upon further inspection,research, I would retract my previous suggestion as to the identity of the fish in question and agree with possible hybrid Vieja/?

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

I can not thank you all enough for your input, effort and kind words

Just thought i'd let you know something very funny...

The little feeder fish we put in are still alive..but I think the amazing thing is that they have settled and Henry does not seem to care about them!! They swim around quite freely, eat his bloodworm, swim around him like he doesn't even exist! LOL..I am thinking it maybe because they are that little that he does not see them as a threat????, I am only assuming this hehe.

and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! From both Ken and myself.

(we also call this forum Henry's very own Face book, we love it! you are all amazing!)

Vieja species are mostly herbivores in nature. I have seen large vieja's(14" plus) kept with small mollies and swordtails and the viejas don't care in the least.

"responsible fish keeper?... Didn't know there was any other kind"

I am not retarded I just can't spell

I have seen a lot of flowerhorns.. and that doesn't look like one.
