Looking for ID Please. Possibly a texas.
 
Was at another local park today where there are Texas cichlids known to be. Not sure if this is one, its different than the ones that i caught at another local park pond. It has the same body shape but the markings are a lil different.


TIA

This is probably a hybrid. Take a look at some of the other fish speices at the park and you will probably find the traits that are not indicative of the texas on them. I am not sure, but i would think a texas could even hybridize with bream or sunfish.

It looks like a young texas cichlid to me. Herichthys cyanoguttatus to be exact. It looks really stressed though probably from being held in the hot sun.
