Not sure if posting in right area...I’ve had this little girl for a couple months now.... I’m not sure if it’s a boy or a girl but I got the habit of calling her a she so that’s what I’ll reference her as! My question is I have no idea what’s kinda of flowerhorn she is... she was listed as a golden monkey.... but looking at pictures she doesn’t look like it... I’m not sure... maybe one of you guys can help me out and know more about the flowerhorn strains. She is currently in a 40 gallon.. will upgrade to a 75 in a couple weeks. I also have a Thai silk flowerhorn in a 125 / sorry for the cloudy water In my girls tank! Been battling floating algae for two months now!!

These are two different speimens, yes? The rainbow-colored one (the first two pictures) remind me of a vieja synspilum, so maybe it's a kamfa x vieja syns. hybrid? Dunno, but it's clearly not a golden monkey. No idea as to their sex, you'll need to vent them (spike for male, two lined-up circular holes for female.) The second one (last two pictures) is a Thai Silk, with the signature steel-blue. Based on body shape (mostly the nuchal hump), I want to say that these are both males, but you need to show a picture of the vents (poop chutes) so that we can make sure. Cool fish, though.

Kamfas are zz x vieja, this one has more vieja features in it. I would say earlier generation kamfa, it might be a male, can't be sure without venting or seeing eggs. If it's fertile then it can give you very good offsprings. Both are good looking fish. I think you posted on Facebook as well?
