    I know it has a nuchal hump, but it has a black marking on its dorsal fin. The black mark is only one that one side. The other side of the dorsal fin has no black. I just found eggs, and this flowerhorn along with another are protecting them. The other is real dark , as I am assuming it is a female. Flowerhorn.jpg

    The female was still showing her egg tube as she swam over the eggs, and this one had a small white tip coming out of it as it swam over the eggs.
