Bought as Thai silk flowerhorn but clearly more to him/her than that. It will forever bug me to not know. I know nobody can surely tell me but hey you never know that’s what this is for. I posted a pic already asking but these are a few better pictures.

they said its a flowerhorn. the mouth and kind of the body reminds me of a tilapia I used to have but not sure.
I know they said it’s a flowerhorn... I know it’s a Thai silk that’s what I was buying but there was two that had this yellow so I bought one and I can’t find anything about yellow on a Thai silk so that’s why I’m wondering what it could possibly be mixed with if it is lol

It is a flowerhorn, that's the ID lol. Thai silk refers to the all-over electric blue sheen coloration, so thai silk flowerhorn would be accurate. It may have more midas in it or something, but once it stops being a pure citrinellus, the name "midas" is incorrect. It is a nice fish though, haven't seen a TS FH quite like this.
