Do you know what a flowerhorn by definition is? The genetics are mixed and muddy so it is mostly about how it looks. I don't care enough to split hairs beyond that.

Depending on it's age, it looks fairly generic....

Ah yeah, I would be not happy with that switch. Electric blue Jack Dempseys are a bit harder to raise due to the weakness inherent in that genotype. That is pretty considering some flowerhorns I've seen, but then maybe I'm not up on how the quality has been improved in even lackluster examples.

Mouth has hints of a Trimac's look to it, but that is just a guess.
