I came home late last night and found that the power outage caused the tank water to rise which allowed for the giant thai fighter to escape into the Flowerhorn tank. The fighter got pretty jacked up, his fins are shreded and it looks like the horn executed a jaw lock on his face. He was able to hide in a corner behind the heater so luckily escaped death. Im hoping that he makes a speedy recovery as that is my girlfreinds favorite fish.

Maybe we should create a handy acronym guide like they have on arofanatics. LH is Huaroluahan (however the hell you spell it) completely different from the JH, Jin Hua of JK, Jin Kang. Its like comparing a blood parrot to a flowerhorn
LH is a typical flowerhorn. A plakat is like a double size betta that is super aggressive with shorter fins. This is a grand champion plakat of the same breed as mine, I wish mine looked like him. These are also known as giant thai fighters, or fighters for short. acrpnym is PK i think

Holy crap you aren't kidding man!!!!!!


I'm glad he went somewhere the flowerhorn couldn't get to him tho after the initial attack.

I hope he's going to be ok man.

Keep us updated tho.

half moons and crowntails like that can go for $150.
My blue actually looks pretty close to that one. Jon Rare has been selling plakats recently, he has started to really like them. He had a black ninja plakat that is very rare for 85 dollars. These fish can be pretty expensive if your talking show quality specimens like these two. The plakats can get as big as 3.5-4 inches

amazingly enough his fins are somewhat recovered already, considering they were shredded the other day i cant believe it. He was eating good and looks like he will make a full recovery

Crown tails of the quality i posted will not pop up in stores on a daily basis. You need to go out looking for something like that, the best ones would be those imported from malaysia therefore the price tag is going to be high because of transit although the overall fish does not cost that much. I have seen alot better then that however. You can sometimes find a real nice fish in an lfs or petsmart for under 10 dollars but maybe 1 in 100.

You put your flowerhorn in the 40 bro? Where did the jack dempsey and everybody else go that was in there?
