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