New Babies Are Born

When I put Ishy to her foster master, I also put my other fishes outside the apartment. I made a little pond-like stuff just beside the front door so every time I step out in the door, I could see them. I was amazed last Monday morning seeing baby fishes roaming around the pond.

Wohooo!

I have no other words uttered, but only “wohooo!“.

I really love fishes most especially if they are showing love and development each and everyday. And now that new babies are born, I guess I need new place or area for them to keep alive and kicking. I still am thinking of purchasing new aquarium sets but I am doubtful if new aquarium sets would be the best thing to do to solve this flooding fishes in my apartment. Another, as soon as Ishy will be home, the vacant part of the shelf would be filled with Ishy’s aquarium then. Oh yeah! Our living room will be becoming lively again. But getting crowded, though.

Hmp!

What do you think the best thing I could do about this? Any suggestions please?

What really are Flowerhorn Fishes?

I have been talking here about Flowerhorn fishes, like, almost all of my posts mention mentions flowerhorn fishes. But I haven’t shared what really are flowerhorn fishes and why are they being cared with love by most of the fish-lovers?

Flowerhorn fishes, as it is very well-known by such name, are actually cichlids. They are ornamental fishes. Some of the distinguishing physical characteristics of flowerhorn fishes are its vivid body color and prominent heads. Their heads are named kok or ‘nuchal’ head. It grows and forms a protruding mass just above the two eyes.

Enthusiasm in breeding flowerhorn fishes date back in 1993 when a Malaysian fish lover and breeder was interested in breeding fishes having protrusions in the head. This fish was first named as Karoi. That fish was found in western nations. Cross-breeding between cichlids then followed resulting to more pronounced head protrusion and more color enhancement to resultant fish bred.

Talking about flowerhorn breeds, next post will be about the different breeds of flowerhorn fishes.
