Good or bad?
Talk me in or out of my idea
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.
i actually have one in a 180g by himself but i want a smaller tank since i can't keep the 180g in my room anymore
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 know...i love them
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.
lol...i bought mines for 1500 in TTD which is about 220 USD
Oh, I was under the impression that you were new to flowerhorn cichlids.
I guess @75g Discus Tank agrees that a 75 is sufficient.
ohhh no...i got a couple years experience with one however that is with a massive tank and not a small one
I'd love to see a pic of him
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.
