    I bought him from PetSmart 2 months ago. They claim that is a Flowerhorn, although I feel as though that they mislabeled it or put it in the wrong tank. I know the pictures aren't the best. Hopefully they are good enough to get an answer.Fish 1.jpgFIsh 2.jpgFish 3.jpg Any ideas?

    I can try to take better pictures if these aren't good enough.

    I'm stumped, sorry. Don't know if flowerhorns have stripes when they're juveniles.

    Looks like a young flowerhorn to me. How large is it?
    Money can't buy happiness, but it sure can pay the rent.

    It is about 2.5-3 inches. I was looking online and he does look like a young FH, but I still don't know, I have a FH that has similar patterns but looks nothing like him. With that said, the fish from PetSmart was only $28 & and the Flowerhorn that I got at my LFS was $50. I will post a picture of the FH if he is in the open long enough.

    That is definately a young flowerhorn. Remember that they are hybrids and dont all look the same. Give them time and it will color up really nice for you.
