I want to say it just looks like a red Texas, but most don’t have the black stripe or that orange of coloration, so Vieja x flowerhorn is possible.

Can you guys help me identify this cichlid? What kind of cichlid is it and is it a male or female? I got it from a guy who raised and sold it as a Red Texas but I want to come to the experts of MFK to determine that.

Definitely a vieja hybrid of some type. Honestly jealous of this fish the colors make me think of magma. Despite whatever hybrid he might be he’s definitely stunning
