Does there exist anything like a dream fish even in our days? Well, at least Crenicichla zebrina from Venezuela is a hot candidate! We were able to import two specimens of this top rarity which have a length of 15-20 cm. So far no external features are known for that species to separate males from females. But one of our specimens is much more slender, has a much larger humeral spot and a comparatively deeper red colored throat. We think that this specimen is a male and the other one a female.
