 Firstly   Cheer  
 
 Secondly:  Pics  please!!!
 
 Thirdly:
 1.  I  read  somewhere  that  keeping  bright  setup  leads  to  good  colours  in  them....is  this  right??
 
 Get  those  neon-red,  blue  green  pebbles  you  always  wanted.  Most  FH  experts  says  the  brighter  (loud,  Govinda-style)  the  environment  the  more  colorful  the  FH  gets.  
 
 2.  Best  food  for  them??

 
 In  my  opinion,  "specialist"  FH  food  is  laden  with  steroids  and  not  very  healthy.  I  would  recommend  Hikari  Cichlid  Gold  and  Bio  Gold+.  There  are  others  who  will  suggest  "Humpy  Head"  etc  etc.
 
 3.  How  long  do  they  live??
 
 Depends  on  tank-size,  food,  water-quality  etc  etc  etc.  Under  decent  conditions,  15  years  plus.
 
 4.  I  have  currently  kept  him  in  a  nano  tank....alright??
 
 Is  this  "Nano-tank"  your  12inches  X  7inches  X  7inches  tank?
 
 Good  luck,
 Sid
 
 PS:  Where  did  you  get  this  from?

 1.  I  read  somewhere  that  keeping  bright  setup  leads  to  good  colours  in  them....is  this  right??  
 
 personally  i  dont  like  coloured  pebbels  u  can  use  some  baisc  things  like  normal  brown  coloured  stones  or  sand  but  do  get  a  bright  coloured  back  groung  for  your  fish  like  blue  .
 
 2.  Best  food  for  them??  
 
 I  would  also  recommend  Hikari  Cichlid  Gold  and  Bio  Gold+.  grans  sumo  ,then  i  feed  mine  shrimps  which  has  carotine  basic  component  required  for  the  red  colour  also  blood  works  and  tobifex  worms.  
 
 3.  How  long  do  they  live??  
 
 Depends  on  tank-size,food,health  etc  but  would  say  10  years  plus.  
 
 4.  I  have  currently  kept  him  in  a  nano  tank....alright??  
 
 depends  for  few  days  yes  but  as  they  tend  to  grow  faster  try  changign  its  setup  asap  because  if  u  feed  him  correctly  u  will  notice  thatin  next  3  months  from  meare  i  inches  he  may  grow  to  nearly  4  inches  Thumb Up  
 
 congrats  Thumb Up

 1.  yaa  more  bright  and  colourful  the  environment  the  more  colour  harmones  produced  
 
 2.all  cich;id  foods  are  accepted  ...but  if  u  need  head  growth  i  recomend  fresh  market  or  dried  prawns  ...sold  in  fish  shops  also   ....enchances  body  colour  and  growth  ..........humpy  head  ,chingsmix  but  rather  costly  ,grand  somu  (has  harmones  )
 
 3.they  live  for  8  to  10  yrs  (wekipedia)
 
 4.  flowerhorns  grow  fast  ........within  6  months  he  will  be  3.5  to  5  inch  .....with  bulkier  body  ............so  u  need  big  tank  menimum  50  gallon  ..............dont  keep  on  changing  d  tank  as  u  will  face  d  loss  because  in  1  year  they  reach  nearly  full  growth  (1feet)....buy  a  b
 ig  tank  i  experienced  d  same  
 
 all  d  best  plz  do  post  your  fish  pics  such  that  i  can  say  weather  its  kamfa  .........zz  ...etc   as  every  verity  has  different  colours

 Suyash,
 
 He  has  good  pattern  on  him..  He  is  just  a  bit  stressed  and  is  not  showing  much  color.
 
 Start  a  new  thread  with  pics  from  when  he's  settled  down  in  his  tank..
 
 Good  luck,
 Sid

 I  think  we  need  better  pictures  of  him  from  when  he  is  settled  down  (not  stressed)  to  ID  him  positively.
 
 Good  luck,
