 Hi  guys,
   I  bought  a  new  tank.  My  tank  measurements  are  36"  18"  21"  length  width  and  height  respectively.  water  capacity  is  around  50  gallons.  I  got  2  flowerhorns.  One  is  4.5"  and  another  one  is  3  inch.  I  partitined  it  into  2  parts.  10"  and  8".  I  was  using  boyu  1500  l/h  submersible  filter  in  one  side.  another  side  i  dont  have  any  filter.  is  it  necessary  i  need  second  filter.  If  it  is  must  i  want  to  buy  top  filter  of  capacity  600  l/h  to  1000l/h.  How  many  bucks  the  cost  of  it  in  boyu  or  atman.
 
       For  food  which  brand  can  i  use.  some  one  suggest  me  Oceanfree  humpy  head  and  oceanfree  redsync.  experts  suggest  me  the  brand.  Looking  for  your  valuble  suggestions.
 Thank  you.

 Srinu,
 
 Humpy  Head  is  a  good  food.  On  coloration  front  If  you  can  get  Hikari  Bio-Gold+  would  be  better  .I  have  been  using  both  have  got  good  results.
 
 Please  share  your  tank  photos  as  well   Smile  .

 srinu,  use  top  filter  instead  of  power  filter
 top  filter   works  better.  from  my  experience  ,  i  can  tell  you  that  flower  horns  don't  like  the   water  flow  of  power  head.
 Oceanfree  humpy  head  and  oceanfree  redsync  are  good
 you  can  also  give  them  prawn  pieces,start  with  a  small  amount.
 the  best  is  beef  heart,it  will  enhance  the  color  of  the  flower  horn.
 but  if  you  use  high  "protein  value  food"  then  you  have  to  change  tank  water  much  more  regularly.
 best  of  luck  Thumb Up

 avoid  those  ocean  free  stuff  or  any  other  enhancing  foods
 as  they  are  hormone  loaded  junk,  not  good  
 they  tend  to  stress  the  fish  if  fed  regularly  
 also  hormone  loaded  foods  and  enhancing  foods  reduce  the  life  of  a  FH  and  also  might  cause  diseases
 (just  my  personal  experience  and  opinion)
 a  good  diet  for  FH
 start  with  FH  baby  pellets  along  with  dried  shrimp  and  small  earthworms  
 as  they  get  bigger  you  caan  move  on  to  food  sticks,  dried  shrimp,  earthworms,  beef  heart,  chicken  heart,  and  for  once  in  a  while  treat  give  ghost  shrimps  or  any  quarantined  feeders(i  never  feed  feeders,  but  some  people  say  whats  the  point  in  keeping  a  fish  which  eats  other  fish  and  not  feed  it  live  fish)

 your  tank  is  way  too  small  for  2   FH's,  one  might  be  ok..initially..first  inrease  the  Tank  size..other  wise  their  growth  will  be  very  less  and  they  will  get  stunted..
 
 Use  Beef  Hart,  Prawns...Just  make  sure  you  buy  the  original  Humpy  Head,  not  a  duplicate..

 Ocean  free  humpy  head  is  good,  try  to  get  your  hand  on  chingmix  or  nls..
 
 MP  would  also  do  great  job  in  getting  hump  and  a  weekly  treat  of  Bloodworms.
 
 
 Share  the  picture  of  your  tank.  Clean  water  is  the  secret  to  Humpy  Flowerhorn.  Thumb Up

 Humpy  head  food  is  best  and  Starry  for  colouration  and  spots,  both  are  from  Ocean  Free.  
 
 Please  do  not  feed  it  with  any  other  food  like  prawns,  chicken  heart  etc.  Your  FH  will  eventually  get  some  form  of  infection  and  die.
 
 Regards,
 Prem
