Pike Cichlid

Pike Cichlid
Crenicichla Lepidota

Length: 12.0"
Sex: Males are smaller than females.
Feeding: Feeder fish and other live foods.
Social Behaviour: Aggressive but will not bother other larger cichlids.

Up Keep: Lots of hiding room and lots of gravel.
Breeding: impossible
Comments: Pike cichlids are agressive fish with a short fuse. I keep a pleco, 2 gold fish, a chinese algae eater, and an oscar with him and if any one gets to close to him when he's in a bad mood he gives them a lesson. I like to feed my pike rosy red minnows and occasionally a worm. You need to keep lots of gravel in there tank because the like to dig and keep a log or something in there tank.
