flowerhorn exhibit

Flowerhorn cichlids are ornamental aquarium fish noted for their vivid colors and the distinctively shaped heads for which they are named.  They are treated as pet and can recognize the owners who feeds them. There was a flowerhorn craze few years ago that some prized specimen can fetch a handsome figure.
