This fish has a full flowerline which confuses me. So I do not think he is full texas, maybe a hybrid?

Possible texas/fh cross? If so, what are the chances its female?

Do green texas males get the black mark on the top fin like flowerhorn?

^^ What HybridFinatic said....and looking like a pretty good chance female. I've had females that didn't have the black spot on dorsal but I haven't had any males that have had it.

Yup, looks female to me too.

If he isn't proven and they're getting along this could be a good test. If he does prove fertile and able to spray successfully there should be some interesting offspring in the mix. I got excited and thought a tube was coming out in the first pic and then looked closer...lol. Good luck.

Goal Red Ruby over in Thailand posted this guy a few months back. May not have been done with a Kamfa, probably a goldbase, but I've been intrigued with the Texas / FH crosses since. Imagine this thing with that kamfa shape above....wooooo hooooo....hahahaha

That guy is just stunning. I need this in my life asap.

Since I'm using a texas female for the project. Should I cross her back to a texas now or with a red male?

My King Kamfa male is super red and pearly. I think they would produce some decent offspring but would that get me closer to where I want to be.

Off topic but I’ve believe you are still feeding okiko, correct? I think you should rethink that. I really don’t want to see your flowerhorns health go. Visit O ol78hunter ’s thread (best pellet for flowerhorn). Lots of good discussion and valuable info there.

Nope I have never heard of okiko.
