  1. Default What type of Texas cichlid is this??

    I brought this Texas cichlid at petsmart that was sold as a red texas cichlid. I was just wondering if it was or not?

    They are only calling it a red texas cichlid because the parents are look like Red Texas or the parents produce fry that could end up looking like a red texas (Texas x festae or Texas x red parrot). Since red texas are hybrids, chances are high that you will end up with a hybrid that doesn't look like a red texas. Pretty deceptive marketing if you ask me.

    Looks like a Green Terror or Blue Acara to me. Definitely not an expert though

    Yeah my thought was green terror too, but I definitely don't know my cichlids as well as some.
    20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!

    The horizontal black band, and the orange/red in the cheeks and chest area is a dead give away that it is neither a blue acara nor a green terror.

    I've been staring at this fish all day and it looks like a very young red texas to me.

    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Yes that is a red texas. With the OPs previous pic, you don't know what it will end up looking until it gets a bit larger.
