Appsolutly gorgeous, the exotic pet shop I am volunteering at has just got a load of babies in.
They look adorable but heard they have a bad reputation, very aggressive and should be kept on their own or with other flowerhorns.
How do you keep yours, hows its behaviour towards other fish?

Hornbag is brilliant, AFG. You've done a great job with him.

Do the convicts bother him when they have young? Also, do any survive or is it just free FH food?

Man, even a small convict is vicious. Hornbag looks wonderful, you have done a great job raising him.

Convicts are gorgeous fish and i would love to have a tank setup just for them but with the 2 other tanks (small planted and 1300ltr frontosa tank) i wouldnt have time.

The babies just diseaper, im not sure who eats them but as they say ignorance is bliss and i rather not know. If i could move the fry on i would but knowbody wants them :(

Oh and i wont put my hand in because he cant tell the difference between my hand and food lol
