You would be more than welcome to borrow my female, she was LFS that i rescued from my niece. Funny, those xmas fulus i can't tell. I think one or two might be starting to show male breeding colors.

Thats encouraging, Elcue is vying for the "Gary Kremen" award at the next meeting. My dad always said: "No man over forty should be allowed to dance!"

Very nice. Good luck. I recommend frozen bloodworms and a nice merlot . I was wondering what happened when you guys took this romance off forum. I think protocol dictates that I get pick of the litter...

The Black Flowerhorn Male now has a mate who is getting along very well with him and they are dancing sporadically. The female has a dark Zhen Zhou pattern, but is polychromatic and can turn 90% black almost instantaneously. The male's breeding color changes from nearly solid black to the "Grey Thunder" pattern of alternating charcoal grey and black body bands, and gets a red-violet face, but no where near the extent of a Red Dragon morph.

I actually used to dance until I was 46, then I got too fat.

I agree, but a don't own a video recorder, and they are black in a tank with black gravel and background. The new female has quite an appetite for Blackworms, which i've seldom seen in good sized Flowerhorns.

They hang out near each other, but aren't dancing or digging. I really don't expect more until early Spring as the female needs to regenerate her lost eggs, and most Flowerhorns don't really get into it until March.
