We received this beautiful, medium-sized (around 15 cm) pike cichlid from Paraguay. Our fish represent the form that is depicted as Crenicichla cf. edithae in Stawikowski & Werner (2004: 140). Occasionally Crenicichla edithae is regarded as a synonym of C. lepidota.
C. edithae has been described scientifically in 1991 by Alex Ploeg for his wife Edith; without her help he would not have been able to finish his studies on Crenicichla. Alex and Edith died on July, 18th 2014 when flight MH17 was shot down over the Ukraine.
