This might be the ticket. I've had a texas in the past and I've always wanted to own this close cousin - H. carpintis specifically Escondido, however Rapps has some interesting local variations in the form of Chairel. The price is right, I could potentially keep a pair in the 75g and its also something new and exciting. Words?

Carpintis are wonderful fish with good "personality" much like the oscars have.they readily breed and are good parents after a try or two.

They have nothing to do with Texas cichlids. That common name is so misleading for so many folks.

I never heard from an blue Texas cichlid. What is that, a new hybrid? Like the Red Texas, the result of crossing H. carpintis with A. labiatus/citrinellus.

Blue texas is the common name used for Herichthys sp. "Rio Cazones," Herichthys sp. "turquoise," and Herichthys sp. "Poza Rica."

The true Texas, H. Cyanoguttatus can reach 12ins. 75g wont hold a pair. They are bigger and nastier than Carpintis.
1600gals of South and Central American cichlids. Some with just a "wee" bit of attitude!

I had a cyano for about 3 and a half years. He was good sized, 10.5 inches but wasn't overly aggressive. He made sure he was the dominant fish, but only asserted himself as dominant, and that was it. I've heard the contrary - that even though they tend to be smaller, carpintis are more aggressive. We'll see I guess.
