Dumb Question Alert Lol

hI all, I have a male and female Kamfa flowerhorn. They are in separate tanks. I’m a little scared to put them together to breed in case they hurt each other.
Is it possible to move the eggs on the terra cotta pot to the male tank (without them touching air) and he would fertilize them? Or do they need to be together for it to all go down?

I’m no breeding expert, but I don’t think he’ll do anything if you just stick them in his tank. Also fry typically need their parents for the first few weeks

I think he will see them as a treat.

They have to be together. I’d put a divider in the male's tank and put the female on the other side. Better to do a soft introduction than just toss her in.

No such thing as a dumb question! I've never personally bred flowerhorns but I would nonetheless suggesting placing a divider so that they can see each other, similar to breeding bettas(since in both cases, its better to let the opposite genders see each other before mating).

Aren't most flowerhorns sterile?
