dang... not what I wanted to hear but i asked:( He was maybe 3.5-4 inches a month ago, now he's like a good 5" and fat. He was smaller than both my oscars when I got him; now he's larger, dunno know why :-? I just don't see him needing a 55 gallon by himself, but im all new to this so i'll take ya'lls word :thumb:

if you want a flowerhorn for that tank, find either a Bonsai flowerhorn, or a Kirin Parrot, they usually dont get bigger then 5-6", which is OK for a 29g. if you dunno what they are, Bonsai's are have a parrot fish body and a flowerhorn face, and kirin parrots are parrotfish with flowerhorn markings and color.

I agree...go with the 75 gal.
I got an okay deal on a used 55 gal. back when I first got my oscar, but I ended up kicking myself for it and sold it off to buy a new 75 gal. setup. I wish I had gotten the 75 gal. from the start.

That's a really nice looking FH. Beautiful flowerline and pearl spotting. Looks like it's getting a kok too. He deserves a 75g tank :D
