 Hello  IAH,
 
 Do  any  of  you  own  or  have  information  about  "Thai  Silk  Flowerhorns"  (AKA  Titanium  Flowerhorns?)
 
 I  have  seen  shops  in  Kurla  selling  these,  but  I  have  no  idea  how  to  choose  one  over  the  other.
 
 Find  below  a  few  pics  of  Thai  Silk  FHs  I  found  on  some  other  website.
 
 Any  information  about  this  will  be  welcome.

 untill  recently  this  was  considered  a  very  unstable  FH,  as  in  not  many  juveniles  made  it  to  adulthood
 nor  did  many  of  them  get  any  big  head  
 
 but  now  there  are  more  and  more  juveniles  are  getting  to  adulthood  and  some  of  'em  are  also  getting  a  niiice  head,  but  not  to  proportions  of  what  a  king  kamfa  gets

 OK,  Point  noted  about  the  "instability"  of  the  strain.
 
 But,  if  I  am  to  judge  one  Thai  Silk  against  another  Thai  Silk  FH,  does  anyone  know  what  are  the  criteria  to  judge  among  the  two?
 
 Another  Question:  
 
 Do  FH  owners/fans  on  IAH  really  like  that  huge  bulging  "kok"  on  FHs  which  is  "enhanced"  by  feeding  it  what  can  only  be  artificial  steroids  and  hormones  to  these  fish?  The  only  significance  of  that  huge  bulging  kok  is  only  for  Feng  Shui  believers.  Do  people  on  IAH  support  feeding  fish  unnatural  steroids  and  hormones  just  to  satisfy  some  pseudo-religious  superstition??
 
 http://imgur.com/hRqgG.jpg
 
 (I  understand  the  size  of  a  natural  "kok"  in  FHs  should  be  similar  to  that  seen  in  other  Cichlids  (Frontosas  for  example)  during  breeding/mating  season.)

 The  main  criticism  of  the  Thai  Silk  after  the  "instability"  seems  to  be  that  their  head  (kok)  won't  be  as  "big"  as  the  more  common  FHs.
 
 I  don't  think  this  size  kok  is  pretty  good  looking  for  what  is  a  4-5  inch  youngster:  http://i.imgur.com/CRXMI.jpg

 Kok  is  individual  interest  &  liking...the  criteria  for  this  hybrid  was  their  head  so  its  considered  to  be  one  of  the  criteria  of  a  good  quality  FH....with  good  genes  an  FH  can  get  monster  kok  without  any  hormone  or  steroid....
 
 Sid  -  the  pic  you  have  posted  is  considered  to  be  a  hard  kok...and  yes  its  relatively  a  very  small  kok.....
