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.

Everything Happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
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.
Rules: If you bend them long enough they turn into loopholes and you can walk right through them.
