upload picture to photobucket or imgur, and paste the link in a post.

Appears to be a texas cichlid. Either Hericthys carpints, or Herichthys cyanoguttatum. Hard to tell from the picture.

Males can develop a slight nuchal hump, but nothing like you see with GT's or Red devils or Midas.

Just a guess but yours looks to be a female. I see a black splotch at the base of the dorsal which often indicates a female fish.

Also possible. It doesn't look as short bodied in the second pic. Texas can be hard to get full body length pictures of. It only takes a slightly funny angle to make them look off.

I'd say until it grows into something that is not a texas cichlid, you can probably call it a texas cichlid. Just know that unless you get a fish as highly prolific as a texas from a reputable vendor or breeder, a lot of people have a hard time recognizing it as a pure species.
