Latisha (1/19/09

Name: Latisha
Breed: Flowerhorn Cichlid
Submitted by:

Latisha is a 2-3 year old Flowerhorn cichlid currently housed in a 40 gallon tank. The tank-mates are a Pleco and an Ornate Bichir. Latisha does not get along with many other fish as often displayed with his aggressive behavior. Hes quite the aggressive eater with pellets, freeze dried krill and bloodworms as his favorites.

The Flowerhorn (also called Luohan) is a hybrid cichlid thought to be man-made from numerous cichlid species from South and Central America. Flowerhorns, unlike most hybrids, are fertile. Flowerhorns are considered to bring good fortune in particular to the hump of adult males that resemble the Chinese god of longevity. Flowerhorns can grow up to 16 inches, requiring a large aquarium for housing.
