I was wondering if anyone knew what a common flowerhorn looks like? I'm after seeing all those $400 ones, but I was wondering what the normal ones looked like? I would love some pics.

At one of the lfs around here, there's a 'one eyed Willile' flowerhorn that I'd like to offer to 'take off their hands'...buthinestly, I really don't know where I'd put him....he's about 5" and might be pretty aggressive...

the cheap flowerhorns you're seeing will probably grow up to look like a trimac with a little more color. I can't say 100% but that would be my best guess.

What jason is saying is spot on, you cant buy a "cheap" flowerhorn cause as jason said it will end up being a "trimachorn" witch isnt that good looking and lack ALOT of color..

Here is my one, i did what you did and i regret it big time..
i payed about $20 for her and its going to look like a trimac that went wrong!
