    Trying to get some help with the type and possible sex of my flowerhorn. It is close to 6 inches (grow close to 2 inches in 2 months), has no black or dark markings on fins, bullies the entire 150 gallon tank, and started getting red under the chest area about 2 weeks ago.

    What would be the difference is the blue and red dragon?

    The main difference lies in the base color, this specimen looks like a beautiful blue around the flowers along the body, and even the basic coloration seems blue. However it has a very marked profile, it would be to check if it was a monkey, but I think it is difficult.

    Got you; yes the base color was blue and that tan around the face, until a couple weeks ago.

    You have to have patience with fh, the final staining comes out after 2/3 months.
