    Deep large ulcers cichlid

    Hi everyone. I have had this Texas x red parrot for a couple of years now and for as long as I have known he would always develop red swellings that would later ulcerate. The ulcers remain for 1-2 months before they heal over by which time ulcers would have developed elsewhere. They form in...

    Texas/ carpintis id

    I've housed a lot of sa/ca cichlids over the years but a few months ago I got my first "Texas" cichlid, it was about an inch when I got it so I just assumed it was a proper Texas. Now that it's grown some I'm questioning whether it's a true Texas(cyano) or a carpintis or a cross. Given the...

    Buddy for a Female Red Terror... Texas Cichlid?

    Got a group of 6 little M. festae that I am raising up to 4 to 4.5 inches... about the time I can sex them and they start getting medieval on each other. Then the males and extra females get sold off. I am planning to keep 1 or perhaps 2 of the girls but don't have the will or the setup to...

    Short body Texas with Crooked Body

    I found this guy in a tank at a LFS. He was in there with some african cichlids and a couple of blood parrots. He has slightly frayed fins but I wrote that off to the africans he was housed with. The blood parrots’ fins were in the same condition. I’ve had him for a couple days and he is...

    Anyone here ever cross convicts and texas? even red texas?

    If anyone's seen my other thread I talked about crossing two completely different species of cichlids... I was wondering how a convict x texas would work. Main difference here is one is nearly twice the size of the other. I was wondering how the personality would turn out, what the size of the...

    Cyano, Carpintis or Hybrid?

    Hi guys, I bought a cichlid labeled as H. Cyanoguttatos. But after reading some posts asking for ID and looking some pictures I'm not convinced he/she is a cyano. Now I'm not sure how to set a proper tank environment (pH, temperature, etc). I've attached a picture. Thanks, FM

    Texas Cichlid - Boy or Girl?

    Hi, Newbie here, bought a 2" Texas Cichlid at the local Pet Smart about 6 weeks ago, he (or she) was in pretty bad shape (bullied and has ich), nursed him back to good health and he's a bit over 3" now.

    herichthys cyanoguttatus in a pond?

    I'm working on putting a small pond (around 500-700 gallons) in my back yard in the Dallas fort worth area. I was wondering if some herichthys cyanoguttatus (true Texas cichlids) could over-winter without the need for heat. I've read that they can survive temperatures all the way down to 45 f...

    Texas/Mayan Hybrid Update-4 years later

    So, 4 years ago I posted my Texas/Mayan hybrids. Since then, only one of them has survived. The surviving cichlid killed the other and is the most aggressive fish I've ever owned. He's my favorite fish and he has become a beautiful specimen! If anyone else has this cross, share pictures.

    Male or Female Texas Cichlid?

    I've had this fish since August 4th, 2016. I've always assumed it was a male but never had a confirmation. It enjoys moving gravel out of the way to show the bare glass after water changes. I thought maybe it was a spawning thing but I don't see the tube. Just curious to hear ya'lls opinion. Thanks!

    New to MFK, Help with Identification

    I ordered this guy through the LFS I work at as a "Red Texas Cichlid." Okay so it's either an unfaded RT or a Green Texas, but I can't seem to lock down a specific breed. I'm up to any and all suggestions. The first picture was the day I got him on August 4th, and the last picture was taken...
