Hey guys so I picked up this thai silk from a LFS quite a while back. Was pretty sure it was a Male and still is but his private area is concerning me. I plan to breed him but I'm scared he won't be able. I have other flower horn and their private area look nothing like it. From the side it looks as if he has a dent upward in that area.

Dont think it’ll affect the fh. Place with a female and see what happens.

? It looks like this fh has no sex organs. Even if it can breed you probably dont want fry with this condition.
Yea that's what I was concerned about and usually other flowerhorn I've been able to see their sex organ

Well I don’t think it takes away from his appearance. Best not to breed this one chief. Keep him solo.

Looks normal to me. Jaw-dropping flowerhorn though!
Thanks! but why does his private area look different than other Male flowerhorn like I don't see a female or Male organ part that usually there

Is this the only visable deformity or is there something else in the face, mouth, or spine? Its a strange looking situation down there. Would be interesting to see if it displays anything if a female is present.

Everything else looks fine but I'm going to try to put him with my female thai slik she started laying about 2 months ago so around the 20th she should lay again so I'm going to try to pair them together and see what happens.
