A RT or SRT ( Red Texas) is able to be produced by breeding a male green or blue texas and crossing it with a female such as Parrot, King-Kong, Mammon, Darmo, Flamingo, RED Devil, Redshock or Redsyn.
The most popular “Cross Breed” Cichlids in Thailand cannot be any breed except "Red Texas"
"Red Texas" is the Cichlids cross breeding between male green texas (Herichys Carpinte) which is originated in South America and female beautiful color fish such as Parrot, King-Kong, Flamingo, Redshock or Redsin. The charming of Green Texas is its luster scales which is called "Pearl"
Three major characteristics of Red Texas are as follows:-Red Texas
Shape: Red Texas is considered as huge structure fish. The mature Red Texas can have size up to 30 CMs. in length.
A nice Red Texas should have wide and thick body with straight fin which is perfectly match with the body.
Color: The most popular and expensive is Red. The next popular is Orangy-red.
Not all Red texas are red, and some might not even fade. There are Red Texas in Red, Orangy-red, Yellow, and Pink. They could have these colors when they are faded.
Pattern: There are several types of pearls..
1. Delicate Pearl
2. Small Pearl
3. Big Pearl
4. Brain Pattern Pearl
Each pattern has sub-categories so pattern of each Red Texas is different. This is one of its charming characteristic that make Red Texas is so popular and make it differ from the other cross breed.
As Breeder always use Green Texas and color fish such as Red Parrot and Red Devil. Red Texas receives nice pearl from father and red color from mother.
However, one lot of babies can come out in two major colors:-
Green Flesh This group receives more genetic from father. It will have nice pearl but its skins have none or less chance to peel off so it will not come out red. This color is not popular.
Red Flesh This has major genetic from mother so it has more chance in changing color. However, not every red flesh can change color into the red or orangey-red which is very popular. After the peel off period, the color may show in yellow or pinkish-white.
