2 kg arh.... wah... that's like how many packs of fish food over the years... that's almost the weight of half a sack of rice minus 500g! *LOL*

What kind of 'steroids' they pump into the fish? ;)

*LOL* Mr Lim can do a lot of things... even magic tricks! ;)

Aiyah... at least Thailand's natural resource has the ability to smile at the bank.... we all here in Singapore... no way to smile at bank through natural resources... except maybe through orchids and guppies... and maybe selling our humans.. ;)

My goodness!!! The horns look like big swollen mushrooms on top of the fish's heads!

I thought flowerhorn standard is that the horn of the flowerhorn cichlid should be proportionate to its body? The horns on the above specimens are out of proportion to the fish in the photos.... almost like *ahem* tumours.
