I went to the my LFS and asked for a suitable tank mate for my large Red Oscar, they recommended a "Rose Queen Cichlid". It is gorgeous but when I try and look the fish up and try to learn a little more about the fish...I find nothing!

Could someone please tell me what I bought! Thanks so much for the replies!

It's a hybrid, Rose Queen is a varient name of a strain of flowerhorn. If you check out FlowerhornUSA, they can probably tell you all about it.

Wow... and FlowerHorns are much more aggressive than Oscars... not a good suggestion in tankmates...

rose queen is closer to a red devil/midas in tempremant.

Depending on your tank size it's going to be hit or miss on how it gets along with your oscar.

They're really pretty looking fish, though. Despite being hybrids - at adult age they can get some great coloring.

My tank is 105g. Yeah, after all I'm hearing I'm guessing the guy at my LFS made the recommendation of the RQ due to the size of my Oscar. My Oscar is approx. 11-12 inches. By the time the RQ gets big enough to get aggressive with the Oscar hopefully they will be totally cool with each other!

So far, so good! They get along great right now! Thanks so much for all the advice on the RQ! :thumb:
