Unsure Cichlid ID - request

Postby Sizuper » Fri Jan 01, 2021 3:02 pm

Hi All,
This is probably a Rio Grande Cichlid, but wanted to get more educated & experienced opinions than mine. I've caught a lot of juvie Rios, and the coloration, pattern, head shape and even eye color don't really match what I've seen before. Thinking it might be a different species in the Texas complex, or a hybrid? Thanks for any help you can give me!

It has resemblance to these fish you had caught a few years back: https://www.cichlid-forum.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=428561 Especially fish #2 in this link.
Perhaps, some type of Herichthys hybrid?
