The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      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.

      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.
