 Etroplus  Suratensis  or  Green  Chromide
 
 Its  a  keepable  common  eating  fish  Very Happy  I  just  saw  an  LFS  here  selling  it  as  Sjt.  Major  yesterday.
 
 It  will  grow  pretty  large;  supposedly  to  18"  although  you  probably  won't  grow  it  that  much  in  an  aquarium,  maybe  9"  -  12"  
 
 It  prefers  brackish  water  and  is  best  kept  in  a  school  of  more  than  6.

 Hello  Raghav!Flowerhorns  are  a  mix  of  atleast  two  different  species(maybe  more,and  that  too  of  uncertain  origin).So  there  cannot  be  one  fixed  appearance  for  flowerhorns.As  far  as  eye  color  goes,red  color  develops  when  the  fish  regains  good  condition.Its  the  same  with  most  angels  and  discus  too.Newly  introduced  fish  do  not  show  the  red  color,until  the  get"set".
 All  said  and  done.....I  doubt  if  anyone  can  guarantee  an  ID  on  a  flowerhorn  Very Happy

 thanks  for  YOur  Reply  Friends  ,  But  I  still  think  it  Looks  more  Like  a  Fish  Named  Convict  than  Flowerhorn  ,  So  can  anybody  assure  me  is  it  flowerhorn  or  convict  .  because  its  face  &  Stripes  are  very  much  similar  to  convict
