    So I bought two of these guys with the label Texas cichlid. I questioned it because I had never seen a texas that looked like this. Thought maybe these were another version or maybe their spots just aren't showing. But I'm seriously doubting that these are Texas. Wondering if anybody know what they are. Thanks

    Definitely not a new world cichlid. African cichlid from one of the lakes. Looks to be an mbuna of sort.

    It might be labelled by the seller a Texas cichlid because it was caught in Texas after it was released in the local waterways by a fishkeeper.

    In the top picture it looks like some sort of tropheus. In the bottom picture it looks like a haplochromis. It's definitely not a Texas.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    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.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    I agree, I think it might be a pearl white zebra. I should have known better but I questioned and the reassured
