Description

Flowerhorn cichlids are ornamental aquarium fish noted for their vivid colours and the distinctively shaped heads for which they are named. Their head protuberance, or kok, is formally termed a nuchal hump. Like blood parrot cichlids, they are man-made hybrids that exist in the wild only because of their release.

Flowerhorns first emerged for sale on the aquarium market in Malaysia in the late 1990s and soon became popular in many countries.

Flowerhorn cichlids have a lifespan of approximately 10–12 years. They are usually kept at a water temperature of 80–85 °F, and a pH of 7.4–8.0. They require a tank of a minimum of 40 gallons, with 75 gallons optimal.
