Hi,

I recently acquired a trio of Polypterus Endlicheri (they were too awesome to pass up!). When I went to get them some more chow, the LFS I got them from had Pikes (Crenicichla strigata) that are just a tad smaller than they are now, and I was wondering if they'd make good tank mates.

While I've kept African Cichlids and the smaller South American Cichlids, I've never kept the Ancients nor have I ever tried Pikes, and the research I did was... inconclusive. So before I add another fish that is generally a bit on the... ah... naughty side, I was wondering what others who've actually kept these species thought?

Cheers!
C4.

Should work out I believe. Make sure the strigata isn’t too small to get eaten by the endli.
