Green Texas Cichlid 3 inch
The Green Texas Cichlid (Herichthys carpintis) is a freshwater fish species that is native to North America, particularly in the waters of Texas and northeastern Mexico.
They are also known by other names such as Pearlscale Cichlid, Lowland Cichlid, and Green Carpintis. They are a popular choice among fish enthusiasts because of their vibrant green and blue coloration, as well as their interesting behavior.
Green Texas Cichlids are typically omnivorous and can be fed a variety of foods, including pellets, flakes, and frozen or live foods. They prefer a well-maintained aquarium with plenty of hiding spots and ample swimming space. The water temperature should be between 72 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit, with a pH range of 7.0 to 8.0.
It’s important to note that Green Texas Cichlids can be aggressive toward other fish species, especially when they are breeding. Therefore, it’s recommended to keep them in a species-only tank or with other large and similarly aggressive fish species.
