Evening all,
New to the forums and also new to caring for my first flowerhorn. I was told by my local store where I have bought all my other fish that it was a grade b but unable to confirm sex this young? And will the colours change as it is now showing red on tail and breast.

Thanks in advance.

My guess is that the FH is female. It looks to have a bullet shape, and dark botches throughout the dorsal fin. Don't be discouraged if it does turnout to be female. FH females can be pretty too. Here is a pic of a female FH, I once kept.

I also think it’s a female. She most likely will change color. Beautiful little lady. I am no good at the grading on flowerhorns so I just say if you think it’s perfect than its grade A. Lol

Thanks for response guys and the welcoming , I did try to check but he or she is still very little I couldn't tell. He/she are showing some lovely red shades now though and I have changed the tank around and added sand instead gravel and looks so much better.
