Flowerhorn fish have been bred over the years to give them the big heads that they are well known for having today. You cannot make a fish that you already own have a bigger head, but there are many that can be bought that carry this popular characteristic.

Alternatively, if this does not appeal to you, you could also breed two Flowerhorn fish with large heads together, as this should produce offspring with your desired trait.

  • About the Flowerhorn fish

Being able to grow to around 300mm in length on average, with some even larger, the Flowerhorn fish is not existent in nature, but is instead the outcome of cross-breeding between many different types of cichlids, which originate from South America.

Due to concentrated breeding, the Flowerfish is extremely strange in looks, making it a popular and highly famous fish to own. It is because of this that breeders are attempting to change its phenotypic characteristics further, concentrating on producing various new colors, irregular markings, a bigger head and wider body. This is all hoped to be achieved without the need to use artificial or chemical methods.
