Just wanting to see what everyone likes. We have a lot of diversity, and a lot of choices. I've listed eight of the 'most common' of the Saxatilis group pikes, just want to see what you guys think are the most popular out of them. If you want to give a reason why please do.

I personally voted for Crenicichla anthurus as being my favorite. Cr. saxatilis and Cr. lepidota are runners up, but anthurus wins the cake for me. They just take my breath away.

C. Proteus for me.. but I'm biased.. My female is a trip.. But nasty as can be.. but I think thats part of her charm.. she reminds me of a Sauger.. only prettier. This was also my first pike cichlid.

I went with Cr. proteus since you left out the super spangled Cr. menezesi. The dorsal pattern on the female Cr. proteus is probably the best of the sax type pikes.

I have kept all of the common Sax types. . . I will always grab some Sveni when they come around, simply stunning and fantastic parents. The northern Uruguay Saxatilis is a beauty too, just so we are clear, I am kinda biased because I caught them myself LOL
