 Hey  Cinciboy  ,  Can  you  check  the  price  for  that,  and  pm  me.  Please.  (I  can  pm  you  how  to  identify  a  true  RT  and  false  RT).  
 
 With  your  words  it  seems  that,  the  fish  you  have  spotted  is  a  Red  Terror.  Well,  very  hardly  do  one  can  spot  a  red  terror  as  similar  to  the  one  posted  above.  (That  is  a  picture  of  a  premium  show  quality  red  terror).  
 
 Further,  green  terror  and  red  terror  have  no  genus  resemblances.  (The  only  resembling  is  in  their  names.)  
 
 I've  personally  asked  many  super  wholesalers,  why  this  fish  is  not  popular  in  India?.  Some  asked  me  in  return  "Is  there  a  fish  by  that  name,  does  it  look  like  a  green  terror  with  red  body".  Some  said,  they  have  heard  about  this  and  seen  its  pictures.  But,  that  is  not  available  or  havent  reached  their  store,  in  past  20  to  25  years  of  their  business.  
 
 When  i  was  on  chat  with  a  senior  cichlid  hobbyist  from  Florida  ,  i  asked  her,  if  red  terror  is  popular  there.  Her  answer  was  like...  
 
 "  I  dont  know,  if  red  terror  is  popular,  but  i  can  assure  that  people  keeping  RED  TERRORS  are  very  popular  Very Happy  in  this  hobby"  .  Her  remarks  was,  it  is  a  very  difficult  fish  to  keep,  even  for  experienced  cichlid  lovers  &  it  is  known  to  be  one  among  the  top  three  aggressive  cichlids  in  the  world.   She  said,  if  a  hobbyist  can  keep  a  single  red  terror  with  other  cichlids,  then  they  are  a  HERO  &  if  a  hobbyist  can  keep  more  than  one  red  terror  (even  male  and  female  together)  in  a  single  tank,  they  are  a  SUPER  HERO  hobbyist.  She  also  told  me  that,  she  tried  to  keep  4  numbers  (each  3  to  4  inches)  in  a  6  feet  tank  in  the  year  2001  and  in  the  3rd  week,  she  ended  up  with  only  1  that  was  badly  injured  ,  and  it  never  lasted  for  2  more  days.  Later,  she  said,  she  never  dared  to  risk  them  again.  
 
 This  fish  could  reach  upto  15  to  16  inches,  and  you  need  a  6  feet  recommended  tank  to  keep  1  red  terror  and  atleast  a  8  feet  tank  to  keep  (or  risk)  more  than  1  red  terror.   Further,  there  is  not  even  a  single  possible  tankmates  for  red  terror.  I've  heard  that  7  inch  RT  males  (it  reach  this  size  at  1  year)  can  easily  kill  dovii,  jaguars,  or  peacock  bass  that  are  over  12  inches.  
 
 So,  who  wanna  try  this  dare  devil?.   I'll  be  be  ordering  20  numbers  (6  for  my  personal  hobby,  and  i  plan  to  rear  (or  risk)  them  in  a  4  feet  tank)  very  sooner  and  i'm  on  the  process  now.

 This  is  NOT  a  Flowerhorn  and  there  is  no  premium  show  quality  red  terror.  This  is  how  the  normal  red  terror  females  look..the  males  lose  their  barring  as  they  mature  and  have  a  golden  greenish  overtone.
