I've been noticing FH's going for insane (to me ) amounts of money recently, and I'm trying to understand it a little better, so if you could answer these questions that would be amazing!
Why are flowerhorns so appealing to you?
How many do/have you had?
What is the most you have spent on one? What would be the most you would be willing to spend on one?
Why are they so expensive? I have read that pricing them goes by their spots and kok, but I dont understand why its priced that way?
Do they really have enough personality to take place of a family dog?
Do you do species only tanks with them, or stick them in a community? If you stick them in a community, why? (I just feel like if I spend a few hundred on a fish, I would have him in a bare bottom decor-less tank so it wouldnt injure itself)
Do you breed them? How many babies do you get? How many quality babies do you get?
What variation is your favorite, and what makes it so cool to you?
Are they really as infertile as people claim?
Are they pretty laid back, or agressive?
Are they prone to any certain diseases?
What kind of tank do you keep them in? Heavily decorated? What type of substrate?
Are they clean or dirty fish? Whats their bio-load like?
I read that the most expensive FH went for lie 600,000 (not sure if it was malaysian or US currency) does anyone have a picture of that fish? I'd like to see it and compare to other fish that are selling for a lot.
Sorry for all the questions!
If you have anything else you want to tell me about them, why you like them, what makes them so special, etc. I Would really love to hear it. I am trying so hard to understand why they are worth so much money to people.
