Cyano or Carpinte Texas Cichlid?

Postby easywolf31 » Wed Nov 14, 2018 11:39 pm

Saw this nice Texas, does it look like a Cyano or a Carpinte or hybrid? Can anyone tell for sure?
I included a pic of a Green Tex I just got. :)

It’s all in the spots. They’re tiny on cyano, with no lines on the cheeks.

So here he is got him on Thursday. I can see why people can call them Blue Texas, I see his back tail and fins blueish at times. Still think it's a Cyano for sure? :)

It is usually fairly obvious telling the difference. When there is a question, one has to suspect a hybrid.

Spots are somewhat bigger than the Rio Grande spots but not so big as the Rio Panuco spots.
