Since they are hybrids, flowerhorn eggs are usually not fertile. Infertile eggs quickly develop an opaque white fungus, and fertile ones are translucent.

As noted above, fertile eggs are usually translucent (You can see through them.) while infertile ones quickly get invaded by an opaque (can't see through) mold or fungus. Flowerhorns are hybrids, and hybrids are usually infertile.

my flowerhorn eggs always end up going bad within 24hrs my fish hav laid more than twice they are all 3inches in length and are a year old i keep seperating them after 24hrs but buy then they hav eaten all the eggs i try to wait 24hrs for male to fertilize but he doesnt do his job and always eats eggs i cant win , what do you reckon do you think since they came from same breeder that they might b in breeding which is causing them to eat eggs ive bred every other fish with much success ,but no luck with flower horn im thinking of getting some from different breeder. that might help?

As previously stated, flowerhorn cichlids are hybrids (a mixture of two different species), and their ancestry has not been disclosed by the developer. Hybrids are often infertile, but that doesn't keep them from trying. Even if the pair does produce fertile eggs, the resultant fry may look nothing like either parent.

Blood parrot cichlids are also hybrids and are also very popular in the hobby. Some aquarists, however, stay away from artificially produced fish. It's a matter of personal choice.
