Herichthys carpintis is very similar looking to the Hericthys cyanoguttatus, the original Texas Cichlid. This colorful cichlid exhibits great parental care and like all fish in the Herichthys genus change from their typical color to an amazing black and white breeding dress. Herichthys carpintis, the lowland cichlid, pearlscale cichlid or green Texas cichlid, is a species of cichlid endemic to Mexico where it occurs in the Panuco River drainage and the Soto La Marina River.
 
 
The Green Texas is usually able to be differentiated from the True Texas Cichlid by spotted patterns. True Texas Cichlids generally have a fine spotted pattern whereas the Green Texas has larger blotches on its side. These fish are hybridized in the hobby, so it is important to get a pure line of fish from a reputable shop.
 
 
It's important to note that this species is fairly variable throughout its range and that different location variants of this species look quite different. It is therefore important to keep location variants pure and not mix fish from more than one location. To summarize, Herichthys carpintis 'Escondido' is a beautiful and relatively easy cichlid to breed. If you get a chance to purchase these fine fish with the intent of breeding them, I would recommend the following: Start with a sufficient number of fish. I recommend a minimum of four, since they are not easily sexed. As soon as you get a pairing, separate them from the others. Driftwood makes an excellent substrate for breeding and should be in the tank in anticipation of a pairing.
