Crenicichla regani “Alenquer”
The pike cichlids (Crenicichla
) represent the most species-rich genus of cichlid at all. More than 130 species have been described. How many of them are valid is subject of discussions, but the number for sure increases to over 90. Some species become pretty large, more than 30 cm, but there are also real dwarf cichlids within the genus that never grow larger than 10 cm.
One of the latter is Crenicichla regani
. The species has a wide distribution in Amazonia and so a great number of local color varieties exist. The main difference between these local varieties is the coloration of the dorsal fin of the females. The females can be easily distinguished from the males by the fact that only the females dorsal has eye-spots (ocelli).
