NATURE & GASTRONOMY

  

 

 

  Flowerhorn (male)

 

Thailand

The distinct protuberance on the head of adult male Flowerhorn cichlids can reach huge proportions. These fish are artificial hybrids that do not exist in the wild and were first produced in Thailand, Malaysia, and Taiwan.

 

These fish were at first produced by crossbreeding both existing species of cichlids with other hybrids, at the end of the second millennium, and are today much sought-after by fish hobbyists worldwide.
