 Hi  you  got  a  nice  looking  guy.  As  Headbanger  already  said  it  belongs  to  ZZ  gene.  I  think  it  is  Kamalau.  It  appears  so  from  the  shape  of  its  mouth.  Feed  it  plenty  of  shrimps  (freeze  dried)  and  blood  worms  to  begin  with.  Although  Headbanger  will  not  agree  with  me  feed  him  with  XO  Redy  Sync  and  Humpy  head.  The  other  alternative  is  feed  him  with  Chingmix  and  Grand  Sumo  it  you  can  lay  your  hands  on  them  in  India.  Do  a  40-50%  water  change  every  week  and  give  good  filteration.  
 
 Good  luck

 Swapnil  S,
 
 IMO  the  tanks  size  is  very  small  and  also  requesting  you  to  have  a  bb  tank  if  possible  for  at  least  one  year  once  he  is  grown  then  you  can  add  the  decor.
 
 well  its  just  a  suggestion.
 
 Regards,
 
 Clive

why  does  it  require  a  bare  bottom,
 any  cichlid  requires  a  nice  set  of  decor  for  it  to  keep  redecorating.

 headbanger,
 
 I  am  sure  that  you  are  aware  that  the  FH  will  eat  lots  of  food  and  grow  as  well.
 
 and  I  am  also  aware  that  if  you  want  the  Fh  to  grow  you  need  to  clean  the  tank  daily  and  do  a  20  %  wc  for  at  least  one  year  by  doing  so  the  fh  wil  be  happy  and  so  will  you.
 
 well  now  comming  to  your  question  why  BB  well  its  always  easy  to  clean  the  tank  of  the  dirt  that  get  collected  at  the  bottom.
 
 i  have  kept  my  fh  in  Bb  since  one  year  now.
 
 regards,
 
 Clive

 I  agree  with  Clive.  In  growing  stage  FH  eat  a  lot  and  poo  a  lot  so  I  think  a  BB  tank  is  the  best  option  till  he  grows  out  at  respectable  4"  or  above.  Also  take  away  the  sharks  and  other  fishes  from  the  tank  as  sooner  or  later  there  is  going  to  be  bloodshed.  FH  are  known  for  their  aggresivness.
 
 Good  luck
