Flowerhorn Fry

Ain’t it real obvious that our family loves to have fishes? In fact, aside from taking care and providing incomparable love and attention to our adult fishes at home, we also rear baby fishes or those fry especially flowerhorn fry.

See those flowerhorn fry above? They are just some of our baby flowerhorn fishes at home. My brother said that if the mommy flowerhorn will give birth to a number of flowerhorn fry soon, he will sell some of it. Should you want to buy flowerhorn fry, feel free to contact us.

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.

Missing Ishy SO MUCH!

It’s already five days that Ishy is not here with me in my apartment. And I am really missing her so much. When she was still here, I used to talk to her for almost two hours a day. I keep following her with my pointer finger every where in her aquarium she’d like to go to.

I didn’t tell M that I temporarily let Ishy be adopted by a friendly caring hand. When he came last Friday, he was very shocked seeing nothing – an empty living room in my apartment. He was asking me where Ishy is, but I still am closed mouth over this thing.

The image above was taken during our trip in Bacolod City. That wall decor image was actually a school of fish in one of the spa centers in Bacolod City. Now that Ishy is not with me, I have nothing to look at but only that wall decor picture in my desktop computer.

Fish Adoption

I have decided to look for Ishy‘s foster master even just for 1 month.

Sorry, but I cannot tell my reasons as for now why I decided to let Ishy be adopted by one of my closest friends.

I will be telling you so soon to whom I let Ishy be adopted and why I chose that specific friend of mine. Rest assured, Ishy is very fine and still alive and kicking. I am missing Ishy most! I am actually being used to talk to her every time I got home from school. She used to dance in front of me. However, things, unlikely to happen just happened.

I don’t like to talk about such things here yet. It’s not the right time, yet. I could say. Maybe soon, I can share to you all why these things are happening now.
