This thread is just to give you a generalization for IDing some of the more common pikes. Certain geographical variants, and the age of the pikes may affect the appearance of the pikes, so use this as a guide line, not an absolute...as they may vary from pike to pike. If anyone has any additional pictures of pikes or comments they would like to add to the list please email them to me at: offspring_xtrme@hotmail.com Be sure to put something about Crenicichla in the subject. I am gonna leave this thread closed as I just wanted the posts with the species to keep it at as low of clutter as possible for quick reference. Thankz!


Crenicichla johanna:
They have a very prominent lateral band, which makes this fish appear as if it lacks a humeral blotch (shoulder spot) and caudal spot (tail spot). There is usually a red horizontal band above the lateral band in adults. Its nostril is placed uniquely for a lugubris group pike - almost touching the upper lip. Also, some morphs have a blunt or flattened lower jaw/lip, as if the fish ran into the glass of the aquarium very fast! There is no mistaking this fish for any other pike cichlid.
