Are you sure? It looks more like a type of ram to me.

Is it a Texas or Jack Dempsey cichlid, or is it something else?

Hello! I'm a former fishkeeper and bettafish.com-er with a rekindled interest in the betta hobby. I don't have any bettas currently, but I'm brushing up on my fishkeeping knowledge with the intention of eventually bringing home another finned friend. ^_^

How long have you had him? From the pic he looks like a young German blue ram. They can have very similar attitudes to bettas and be kind of aggressive. For cichlid they're fairly calm but males will often fight and can even kill each other. I'm not sure how they would do with a betta and fin nipping (the pet store near me often keeps them with large angelfish) but I would keep an eye on him and be prepared to remove one or the other if necessary. Otherwise they are wonderful fish and will even display or "ram" at their reflection.

That is not the fish at full colour. The bar going through its eye, the blue under its eye, the general shape of it and the spotting on its fins make me think ram. In fact as soon as I saw that fish I thought ram.

Plus how many people go to the store and buy one random cichlid?

I can't see any resemblance between it and the fish you posted at all.

Look at the pick of him and then look at ram. Rams as babies And juveniles have there distinctive trates like NO solid stripes, The spot on a ram would be visible and he would have light coloration. His fish has stripes, Blue near his face and blue spots on his fins, NO visible spot and No tint of of other colors coming in

I've seen these guys in a local pet store and did a bunch of research when I was trying to figure out if I wanted to keep a pair or go back to bettas. He/she could maybe be a bolivian ram. Very simular just less colorful, larger, and maybe more agressive not sure about that tho). But GBR rams that are young have those stripes. That fish is young, few months, not at adult color, and possibly has some stress stripes. Its recommended to put GBRs in only fully cycled tanks as they can be very sensative.
