    I have caught the itch for a flowerhorn. I use to have one but had to rehome it when I downsized a while back. The place I bought my first one is no longer in business and to be honest I have only bought stock from my friend Rachel Oleary (MsJinkzd) for several years now. Since she only deals in inverts and micro fish she is unable to help. So I turn to everyone here :) Any suggestions for where to buy a decent quality flowerhorn that isn't at aquabid GINORMOUS prices?

    I wish my LFS did carry them Dawn lol Guppies are about as exotic as they get in my LFS.

    Thanks Buzz, I purchased fish from them once and they did not have the best quality or healthiest fish. I am not one to allow one bad experience to sway me as poop does happen, however upon researching I found I was not the only person who was dissatisfied with the experience. I would steer clear of them, thanks for the suggestion :)

    Try searching on Aquabid. My Flowerhorn is now 12" and the 90 gal is getting too small for him. He is recently being kept by friends due to all my moving lately. He is definitely a character. My puppy in a tank.

    I will check it out, the last time I looked they all seemed VERY over priced on AB.

    I use to hear such bad things about their shipping and customer service, I will have to check out now and see what I hear. They have some nice ones.
