Smile "Flower Horn" Fish

Still remember those used-to-be-very-expensive
"Flower Horn" fish? Not sure if this is the right
English name for that fish, but I think you guys
know which type of fish I am referring to.

Days ago, I checked out the price (small one),
it is now around RM8 - RM15 only.

My brother gave a big one to me last time.

Now, I only keep small gold fishes...

Ya, I think I remember them.. they were supposed to be good luck, but they made a mistake. They did not create a breed that can't lay eggs or breed because now it's all over the place. Some fishes can't be bred at your own aquarium and that's how they control the prices.

i used to have 4..

2 died when one day my whole aquarium was polluted - all my fishes all die heart ache then...............

then i added another 2 - notorious fish mafia..
why? they always go bully other fishes around them....

i called them engineer too because they love to dig and transfer ..

i used to put landscape sand.....1 week later you can see one side heavy sand covered because they will take their time to suck the sand and ptooi on the side of the aquarium like mountain....

i seen them kiss before - that's lovely hahaa.... especially when they have sharp mouth
