I'm not an expert, but it's an interesting strain cross. I can say that zhen zhu and red dragon are two different strains and this little fellow doesn't resemble a red dragon, but does favor zhen zhu. He does show some promise to be an impressive fish when he grows up though. With flowerhorns you get a pretty mixed bag. He could look completely different when he matures. Treat this guy right and you'll have a great display fish.
