Is the Texas the lone fish in the 55?

A 55 is quite limitin, especially with a larger fish like a Texas. Adding additional cichlids could be an issue.

Agreed... once the texas reaches maximum size, that really is all you can add in a 55 gallon. I suppose there is a possibility that a single convict might coexist.
