The Texas Cichlid (Herichthys cyanoguttatus) is one of the most common and popular of the large Central American Cichlids. Their bodies are covered with metallic blue spots (as opposed to the smaller, more turquoise-green speckles on the closely related Pearlscale Cichlid, H. carpintis). These cichlids grow very large and territorial and should not be kept with similar fish or in a small aquarium.

These fish are omnivorous - eating both meaty foods and plant matter - but despite their boisterous temperaments, they eat more vegetation than meaty foods. Their diet should include plenty of plant-based foods with meaty fresh or frozen foods as a supplement only.
