Looks female to me. The majority of Red Texas cichlid males are sterile. Fertile RTC's can mate with many varieties of Central American Cichlids.

Looks like it has the female trait, black blotch markings in the dorsal fin. Although Texas cichlids in general dont get huge nuchal humps, males often display small ones. Your fish shows no sign of one yet. Here is a pic of my adult male unfaded Red Texas cichlid.
