Thx UNC. She is about 10-11ins. Made about 9 pretty quick, a year maybe less. Ultra aggressive fish.

She was sold to me as a Red Texas, and the cross is male H.Cyanno and female Festae. Grade ,or quality of parents unknown to me. I did throw a pic of her on an MFK RedTex thread some time ago, and there was another observation that she had a Synspilum look.


Yeah, you never know what you're gonna get when cichlids cross.....but I'm not seeing any Festae in there......Texas, Ok.......but that pink color & overall appearance says pink Fenestratum to me. And they are a nasty piece of business.... :evil:



See what I'm saying, Dave?

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.

That's a healthy looking fish Dave. I assume she doesn't play nice with others?

lol... that's an understatement. I think she hates herself. Has smashed 2 heaters, cant have a thermometer in the tank. I tried her and Thor in a 180 with divider. He seemed ok with it, but she was constantly ramming the glass trying to get at him. Completely oblivious to the fact that he would have tuned her in. Destined to live alone, she gets by just fine.
