Sounds like a classic flowerhorn! Steals your heart and bites the hand that feeds them lol
Haha yeah he sure did that. Especially when he had babies in the tank, it just got 10x worse, he'd bite down and shake his head like a bulldog pulling a branch off a tree lol.

Looks more like a Red Magma than a SRD as it has some Kamfa like traits (rectangular body, sunken in eyes). Red Magma is a SRD x Kamfa mix. Very nice fish either way. Only real flaw I see is the pearls don't cross all the way over the head.

Last time I posted on this thread, the census was that this lil guy was a SRD X Kamfa mix. I have posted some update photos of him and I'm wondering if you all still think he is an SRD X Kamfa or something else? I'll be interested to here what you all think! :)

He has a nice body, not as boxy as kamfa but not as tapered as red dragon, somewhere in between. Those are very blurry lines. Red dragons/zz are hybrids of midas, trimac, parrot (hybrid of red devil and redhead cichlid). Kamfas are made using cross breeding red dragons/zz with parrot or red head cichlid to get more of certain traits. So both are hybrids of same species with different proportions of genes and different targeted traits.

I am not 100% sure from pictures but his tummy looks slightly swollen. Might be good idea to add some veggie pellet in to his diet.
