I have some questions:

1. Currently I am keeping it in a three footer planted tank, is it enough for him?

2. What are the good foods available in market for flowerhorn?

Comments are most welcome.

Thanks Dada.

I failed only with a few fishes in planted tanks. They are silver dollar, severums, Green chromides etc.

As an admin you should be showing people to keep them in the right way...

Showing them in a planted tank only leads to unethical/unhealthy fishkeeping.

Now turned into a non-planted. I brought fish without any plan so released in a planted tank.
