In Asia are keeping Flowerhorn fish as a good luck fish
The popularity of the fish is the prominent protrusion on its head. That is why it is known as the Flowerhorn, or Luohan fish, as the Chinese prefer to call it. The significance of the protrusion on its head is the belief that this fish can get you a head start in your career and wealth. Therefore, when the fish grows bigger, the hump gets bigger. Therefore, many people buy fish purely to improve their luck.
While the craze for Flowerhorn fish is on, a single fish can fetch a few thousand dollars. The newspaper reports help fan the craze by publishing stories about people who strike the lottery after keeping the fish.
Even though the craze is over, there are still many sincere believers in the Feng Shui aspect of the Flowerhorn fish.
The businesspeople recalled the days of brisk trade when they kept the fish in the office. The investors and speculators could keep the fish and profit big money from the stock and real estate markets. Many of them struck it rich in the lotto.
The Flowerhorn is not a natural Cichlid fish. Instead, Flowerhorn Cichlid is a crossbreed fish from generating crossbreeding South American Cichlids with it’s origins traced back to as recent as the early 1990s. The marking on the body of the fish differs. No two fishes are the same. The Chinese even believe that the markings of the fish contain a certain mystical message. The Flowerhorn fish is very hardy. It will not die even if you go away for a short trip of five days and do not have anyone to feed the fish. This particular breed seldom gets sick. The easiest way to take care of the fish is to change the water once a week. If you have the time to change the water twice a week, you may never have a sick fish.
