Question Flowerhorn eggs fertilized by Con?

EDIT!!
Would a flowerhorn lay eggs without there being a male?


Hi, I have a fh who has been acting weird for a couple days now and doesn't leave her spot (a house). I was wondering if my male con could have fertilized her eggs even though he has a female who he has bred with and is currently raising fry with. I figured my little cousins had frightened her and she is just scared. Not too sure, please help. Any response would be greatly appreciated.

They are 2 different species so I highly doubt if it is possible.

Technically it could be possible and has been done before.

Re: Flowerhorn eggs fertilized by Con?

to start with the flowerhorn is already a crossbreed of 2 different species of cichlid so adding a 3rd species can easily happen..
i am one that believes we should not contribute to the crossbreeding of species....let god handle that department....
or maybe folks would like to see humans crossbred with warthogs.

I'm not trying to play god. I never said i was trying to cross breed. I was wondering if a male from a breeding pair of convicts would breed with another species of fish. I know that the flowerhorn is a crossbreed. So your comment is irrelevant. Im aware that they could breed, but im just wondering if for any chance it would happen.

Re: Flowerhorn eggs fertilized by Con?

That's quite a leap from cross breeding fish to mutant human warthogs.

Re: Flowerhorn eggs fertilized by Con?

if one thinks about it ; it really isn't...one species being crossed with another..fish or mammal...same same..and it has already been considered...remember Dr. Moreau ?
