That didn't look much like any flowerhorn I have ever seen. If it is I think it's a female with a VERY small hump.

It’s a juvenile ThaI Silk, hasn’t developed a hump yet. The only way to really know its gender is to vent it.

I second that. A video can help too usually there is a difference in activity levels and swimming patterns too.

Can I vent the fish now or is it too early

I’ve been really wondering if this Flowerhorn is a male because I want to have a flowerhorn who is fearless and have a huge lol (hump on head) anyone have any ideas or ways of sexing a flowerhorn fry. Please quote any websites that show to sex a fry.
Thank you!
