    Hello @shiv234, I have personally never kept a flowerhorn cichlid before but I was very interested at one point in getting one as well. I did a lot of research and everywhere I read, it said the minimum tank size for a full grown flowerhorn cichlid was a standard 75 gallon aquarium.

    Maybe actual flowerhorn cichlid keepers can add there opinions as well and maybe even correct this information if wrong.

    75 should be enough, but 100+ is my recommendation.

    They are a very personable fish though so I think it would be a fun fish to keep in your room.

    I saw a really beautiful 4 inch flowerhorn at my LFS. I had an empty 29 that I was planning on using as a growout until I could get a 75.

    Then, I saw that he was $600.

    Oh, I was under the impression that you were new to flowerhorn cichlids.

    I guess @75g Discus Tank agrees that a 75 is sufficient.

    I see, well in that case I guess it's safe to say that a 75 should be fine

    I think a 75g is good, it has the depth for it to grow and turn. I think you should be fine.
