Is it a low quality fish? You can only get so far with food.

Krill,chopped earthworm's,cricket's,shrimp,and good quality pellet food such as New Life Spectrum(has vegetables and fruit) would be good food's, but no food's will make hump larger for this is entirely genetic.
Some will develop large hump's some won't.(some females develop small hump's)
Keeping nitrAte level's low will be a bit tough in 30 gallon tank(Too small longterm) with a fish that can grow as large as the Flowerhorn. (50 percent weekly water changes). IMHO
Those are good.
Some don't have humps because it's a different gene or i cannot grow one.
I have kept them before(my first fish ),one can't grow a hump due to it's gene.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!
