Looks like a south american cichlid...maybe some sort of flowerhorn breed?. best bet would be to call the petstore and ask. good luck

Male Texas cichlid would be my guess.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

It is definitely a Texas Chichlid. It needs a 50 - 100gal tank.

It is not long enough in the body to be a true Texas cichlid.

It is actually a Herichthys carpintis or Green Texas Cichlid, can be called Pearlscale as well , there is a difference, Herichthys carpintis have smaller spots than a true Texas.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
