Red Dragon Flowerhorn
Like the blood red parrot cichlid, the flowerhorn cichlid is a successful hybrid from two or several species, including red terror, synpillum, and citrinellus cichlids. Malaysian breeders wither the first to successfully export these to the United States Today there are more strains than can be mentioned in this short description, but the red dragon flowerhorn is a hardy and affordable creature. When these fish get big they get mean, really mean, so expect to provide them with their own aquarium down the road.
