Flowerhorn cichlids are a special variety of cichlids known for the hump on their heads. They can be called as aquatic bulls with their aggressive nature and distinctively shaped head. Like many exciting varieties of aquatic fishes that we see to day flowerhorns are also man made hybrids. Their market value varies with the size of the hump, larger the hump; higher will be the price. They are territorial fishes and it’s not that easy to pair cichlids. They eat a large variety of foods and you won’t have any problems in making them eat. Even though young flowerhorn cichlids are much cheaper than adults, the problem is that you won’t know what type of color it will exhibit as it grows big.
