I would agree. Has most similarity to V. bifaciatus because of the large black blotch in the middle of the body. But with Vieja/Paratheraps it is very difficult to distinguish and determine whether or not fishes are crosses because individuals are highly varibale and the differnt species are very similar. The red on the fins and and the red breast would seem to suggest Black belt ancestory but who knows for sure.Chromedome52 said:Appears to be Vieja bifasciatus, best guess.
Flowerhorn is a term for various crossbred CA cichlid breeds. Some do pocess Veija/Paratheraps ancestory, though most strains seem to show greatest similarity to the Trimac cichlid ("exCichlasoma" trimaculatus) and/or Amphilophus species (RD/Midas).awilson0001 said:is this type of fish related to flowerhorn? when i try those names online i sometimes see flowerhorn tied in with it. can you tell me about this fish's typical attitude?
can it be housed with other fish? with my midas or no? smaller cichlids or no?
