 I  just  wish  this  thread  doesn't  offend  flowerhorn  lovers,  but  I  just  can't  stand  the  sight  of  this  fish..  I  mean  what  is  so  great  about  it  that  its  being  called  a  vastu  fish?  And  I  don't  see  how  the  head  is  a  beauty?  The  flowerhorn  looks  likeke  a  mascot  for  support  for  brain  tumor.  I  see  amateurs  n  sometimes  hobbyists  buying  flowerhorns  for  their  "beauty"   and  for  their  value.  It  seems  to  be  a  good  money  making  business  but  I  wish  I  could  educate  people  about  what  a  real  fish's  beauty.  I  don't  mind  replacing  it  with  our  own  Channa  gachua  as  a  "vastu  fish"   
 
 If  the  flowerhorn  is  considered  beautiful  then  I  think  the  blob  fish  or  the  moray  eel  are  the  most  beautiful.  Fish  like  the  lion  fish,  Channa  barca,   bettas,  mantis  shrimps  etc.  Those  fish  are  unique  and  beautiful  
 
 I  hope  I'm  not  the  only  flowerhorn  disliker  around  Sad
 Is  there  anyone  else  who  think  so  too?

 Looks  like  a  fat  lady  with  lipstick  and  brain  tumor.  Heard  it  is  not  a  natural  fish  but  genetically  modified?

 I  don't  know  about  that  but  looks  like  the  person  who  altered  it  did  a  pretty  bad  job  at  it.  I'm  just  happy  that  I  could  share  this  with  hobbyists  because  its  the  one  thing  I  hate  seeing  when  I  walk  into  an  lfs  or  a  person's  house.

 Yeah!  And  I  hate  the  people  too,  who  buy  them  and  then  drop  them  in  river  or  pond.  They  just  destroy  the  natives.  These  are  mutants  came  from  zombi  lands.

 Me  too..  Me  too...!!
 Flowerhorns  are  man-made  devils.  They  are  created  by  those  greedy  business  people  as  a  source  of  easy,  more  money.  These  hardy  demons  adapt  with  any  kind  of  temperature  and  can  become  a  real  big  threat  for  our  native  species  if  let  in  the  local  water  bodies.

 I  would  like  to  point  out  here,  another  invasive  species  which  is  more  common  than  the  FH,  the  Plecostomus  sold  by  the  lfs  in  the  name  of  Tank  Cleaners.

 @Deepak  g-  I  know  how  you  feel.  When  someone  tells  me  they  have  a  flowerhorn  I  give  them  a  disappointed  look.  They  are  such  a  waste  of  Money.  
 
 @keluthi-  plecos  are  atleast  a  bit  better  than  the  flowerhorn.  
 
 @others-  long  live  the  natives!  The  true  beauty  lies  in  the  Indian  natives.  Very Happy  Chuckle
