If there are three cichlids which you are sure to find in any good pet store it would include the Texas cichlid, Managuensis and Jack Dempsey's. Known as the Rio Grande cichlid, Herichthys cyanoguttatus also formerly called Cichlasoma cyanoguttatum is an American cichlid classic. Why, for a number of reasons including its simply popular, very colorful, widely available and a great starter cichlid relative to larger cichlids.
 
This cichlid is known to be possibly the only freshwater cichlid that is native to the United States, namely Texas although its range covers Northeastern Mexico where it’s called Mojarra de Norte by the locals. Not only is this an American classic from a pet store perspective but this species has become a sport fish in terms of catching a freshwater fish by reel and tackle. It’s not uncommon for the Texas cichlid to reach 12 inches in length.
 
Herichthys cyanoguttatus or the Rio Grande Perch as it’s also known as, is relatively easy to spawn and quiet prolific with egg counts of or near 1000 eggs per spawn. Interestingly there is another species of Herichthys called. H. carpintis which is very similar to H. cyanoguttatus in shape but vary in color and size which is smaller. Some varieties of H. carpintis are quiet beautiful and these varieties are referred to as Rio Hondo, Vontehillo and Escondido respectively.
 
That said H. cyanoguttatus has been crossed with other cichlids in the hobby creating a man-made hybrid known collectively as the Flowerhorn Cichlid. But in particular one such creation from artificial hybridization of these cichlids resulted in what is known as the Red Texas Cichlid or also called the Super Red Texas Cichlid.
