I take it you are saying can anybody help and not any boy help? LOL

I agree with Hikari pellets but colors will also change with stress. Does he have enough tank space?

PS....Second thread was deleted. You only need to ask the same question in one thread.

What are your perameters at?
Is there anything else in the tank?
What size is the tank?What filtration do you have?
When was your last water change? How much?

All these things can be a stress issue!

I'm sorry sandy_byz, I don't mean to be rude but I have no idea what you said there. Could you please say that again, in English? Thanks.

It sounds like you have a 55gal tank with a sobo filter,an air pump with two decorations that let out bubbles.
You have a flowerhorn and 2 plecos and a catfish.
Can you please post a pic of your other fish.
Do you have a test kit for your tank water?

guys, stop messing with the fellow.

Here's the deal: flowerhorns are a hybrid and with that there are many many different versions yours is something like a golden monkey and should look that way, feeding hikari can make the colors more vibrant and it will be healthier but it will look the same.
P.S. it's a very handsome fish.

I'm not a Flowerhorn pro but it looks like a JK flowerhorn ( Jin Kang ) to me.

and I wouldn't feed any kind of meat to a flowerhorn. they are hybrids and their intestinal system is usually weaker than normal fish. they easily get in internal troubles. I feed my FH various kinds of pellets and shrimp.
