I want to see the orange pike!
POST SOME PICS!!!!

At Petsmart we had some orange pikes, but at the time I wasn't so into them.
Now I'm kicking myself in the ass. :cry:

Crenicichla sp. xingu I....also known as orange pike. Doesn't stay orange for very long. Around 6 to 8" they start changing color. Males get a drab brownish olive color...females are the ones that look pimp turning burgandy red and black. very kewl looking! Yes....kick yourself over and over....you passed up an oppertunity to get a pike....NO NO NO!! Always seize this chance! Unless its a belly crawler or Johanna...:p....but even then!! :p

Yup!! Awesome picks bro! Makes me miss mine badly!! Definately still a juv though...hopefully you got a female...lol...much more pleasing to the eye once they start hittin adult hood. Its still got about two color changes to go through, thats what I love about Lugubris pikes is the 'transformation' from juv. to adult! Just awesome!
