Flowerhorn cichlids are ornamental aquarium fish noted for their vivid colors and the distinctively shaped heads for which they are named. Their head protuberance is formally called a nuchal hump. Like blood parrot cichlids, they are hybrids that exist in the wild only because of their release.
What do flower horn fish eat?
Depending on the size of your flowerhorn, they will eagerly eat krill, mysis and bloodworms, as well as almost any animal-based foods. If you feed frozen food, thaw them in aquarium water before feeding. Similarly, soak freeze-dried foods for a minute in aquarium water to prevent digestive issues.
