 2  weeks  back  i  bought  a  flowerhorn  juvenile  hardly  1.5''.
 since  then  its  just  doing  great
 however  i  was  thinking  how  to  improve  its  colours  as  it  grows  into  adult
 what  makes  them  grow  faster(in  the  sense  of  healthy  growth)
 how  to  enhance  its  clours.
 other  info  would  be  appreciated

 Hai,
 
 Humpy  Head,  Excel  Red  for  6  days  a  week  and  market  prawns  once  in  a  week  (probably  red  prawns)  will  keep  him  better.

 For  any  cichlid,  BHM  is  the  best  food  for  growth..if  he  is  only  1.5"  then  i  dont  think  you  will  be  able  to  feed  him  humpy  head..Try  starting  off  with  BHM  or  high  red  or  maybe  hikari  cichlid  gold..then  when  he  grows  upto  3-4"  then  start  feeding  him  humpy  head..It  is  important  that  you  make  him  get  used  to  different  types  of  food  from  the  starting  otherwise  they  will  give  you  a  headache  later  !!  
 try  experimenting  with  what  you  feed  him..

 Yes  you  can.  But  its  good  to  get  them  disciplined  to  quality  dry  food  for  better  coloration.  Heard  Chingmix  is  something  which  grows  its  big  'KOK'.

 Hi
 
 As  others  said  XO  humpyhead  is  good  with  frozen  blood  worms  from  Taiyo.  You  can  also  feed  them  market  prawns  once  in  a  week  would  give  a  better  body  growth.  Chingmix  and  New  life  spectrum  aren't  easily  availble  in  the  market,  but  they  are  one  of  the  best  for  hump  /  kok  growth  and  colouration.
 
 Regards

 xo  humpy  head  is  nuthing  but  oceanfree  product  
 
 prawns  and  other  spirulina  rich  food  is  good  for  many  other  fish  to  gain  red,  but  in  FHs  it  seems  to  reduce  the  pearling  and  the  color  as  well.
 good  quality  pellets  is  the  way  to  go  with  FHs
 
 a  FH  will  not  get  a  KOK  and  color  and  pearls  just  if  fed  hormone  inducing  foods,it  has  to  be  in  their  genes,  i  always  stay  away  from  them,i  have  lost  one  really  expensive  FH  to  this  crappy  hormone  inducing  foods,  they  usually  get  hernia  when  fed  these  hormone  inducing  foods  constantly.

 to  be  very  honest  i  wont  recommend  that  till  the  time  you  dont  know  the  source  of  Prawns  and   you  may  need  to  get  them  boiled  before  feeding  them  to  FH....   
 there  is  very  high  chance  of  Prawns  to  be  infected  with  somthin  ......

 Boiling  doesn't  make  sense  as  the  nutrition  will  be  lost.  Just  make  sure  you  don't  make  it  as  their  primary  food  and  should  be  given  for  diet  variation  once  a  week  or  so.
