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.

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).

+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.

Look's like a big one.

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.
