    Flowerhorn Fish

    Anyone with a suggestion to what it is called in thai?
    My dictionaries came up with a blank.

    Would appreciate the thai spelling as well.

    I have two of them, very playful fish. They will actually see me reach for their food and get excited.

    There's a shop near Sizzler's on Thong Lor. Don't know if it's any good or not.

    If you want a Flowerhorn at a good price, there is a shop near me (Saphan Mai, BKK). The fish are much less than JJ prices.
    I paid 400 baht for my 8" flowerhorn.
    I also bought my tank, 48"x20"x20" complete with filter, lights, lid and stand for around 3500 baht.
    Do not walk beside me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me for I may not follow. Just pretty much leave me the fuck alone!

    Incidentally, I have a acquaintance in Bkk who claims that he on several occasions noticed chinese people studying the markings on the sides of his fish. Apparently these markings ressemble chinese letters and numbers and they were looking for lucky numbers for the lottery.
    Mayby a business opportunity?

    ^ That's what the TV show was about. Very big business if the fish has recognisable characters
