How do I breed flowerhorns? I’ve recently bought two small flowerhorns and I’m pretty sure it’s a pair. How do I breed them when they’re old enough?

Can we see a photo of the fish and the setup? It gives most an ideal of how to approach that question. Tank size as well! If you have the time.

From a newbie

Big tank
Mature male
Mature female
Glass partition
Regular feeding for a week
Big water change after the week (try new water slightly colder than tank water)
Female tube drops
Eggs, with or without removing partition
Remove partition and sit and look pretty
Witness violent fights
Don't panic
Fight continues for a long long time, seperate again
If not, boom. Eggs.


I've had my pair for two days, got from seperate people. They have already spawned
