Super Red Texas x Super Green Texas - 7-10cms (photos in listing are of the parents)

The Red Texas Cichlid is a hybrid fish that was developed by the cross-breeding of Flowerhorn Cichlid (Cichlasoma sp.) or other Red cichlid crossed to  Green Texas Cichlid ), this does not exist in the wild. In a sense, the Red Texas Cichlid is a second-generation hybrid, as the Flowerhorn Cichlid with which it is cross-bred is already a hybrid produced by cross-breeding the Trimac Cichlid with other various Central American Cichlids. As Flowerhorn cross-breeding began in the mid 80s, they have since been bred with multiple other species and line bred for colouration and pattern, making them almost indistinguishable from their wild origins.

While Flowerhorn Cichlids are well established with various strains of reproducible colours and patterns, the Red Texas Cichlid is in a much earlier stage of its development. Because of this, the overall quality of each fish varies widely between individual specimens, which means only a few specimens grow to exhibit the brilliant red and black colourations that are so highly sought after. The rarity of species with the brilliant red show colouration and the scarcity of their availability in the aquarium hobby has meant that their price is often quite expensive and can vary wildly between various sellers and aquarium stores. For example, High-quality red texas can be worth $1000 upwards if the fish turns red.
While high-quality show specimens are rare to find, aquarium stores will often have fry or juvenile Red Texas Cichlid which while a gamble, buying one may turn out to be an attractive fish and worth an extreme amount of money which will make everyone want to purchase the fish from you, However, owning red texas has its benefits of show quality and can turn out to be a very attractive and rewarding fish to watch and show off to others.
