Pike Cichlid for Sale with Crenicichla species list

  Crenicichla species
Pike cichlids are a group of fish from South America which belong to the genus Crenicichla. There are some 90 recognized species of pikes cichlids recognized and a current Crenicichla species list can be found below. These predator fish are quiet popular with cichlid hobbyists who fancy these interesting and beautiful fish.
Most Crenicichla or Pikes are wild caught fish which are imported and sold by local pet store, online stores and directly from hobbyists. There are some species of pikes which are spawned in the aquarium and sold but more are imported than they are bred. In the wild most pikes are predators and are known as ambush predators in particular. Essential if they can fit prey in their mouth they will inhale them very quickly.
Crenicichla species are available in a broad range of sizes beginning with smaller varieties of pikes which max out at around 4 inches (the dwarf pikes) and there are some that can easily exceed 12 inches. In the wild they are known to eat small fish, insects, worms, larvae and crustaceans. In the aquarium they will accept cichlid pellets, freeze dried or frozen krill or plankton and of course live feeder fish like common goldfish.
