It kind of looks like a tilapia, but we have cold winters.

Can anyone positively identify it?

Al you have a tilapia. If you saved it and put it in 50F water in the refrigerator or cool water & it promptly died - tilapia positively. It will not survive your winters. Someone stocked your pond.

I was thinking it was some kind of cichlid too. Tilapia is a cichlid and I am thinking red belly.

Could be a Black Acara - Cichlasoma bimaculatum. They have been found in living in Florida, but I'm not sure about Texas.

I didn't think Acara got that big. We had a few Blue Acara in our 75 gallon tank and they were the bosses. Just about killed everything smaller and everything bigger had their fins nipped off.
