Old Pix of Some Rare Crenicichla

In Rare Crenicichla on June 14, 2010 at 7:23 pm

The other day, I was going through some of my old pix dating back to 2002, when I was using a very primitive digital camera, and had no idea what I was doing! But I had some super nice rare fish back then.. Had totally forgotten until now. So here are the pix. They’re a little rough around the edges!

Young Crenicichla sp "Cobra"

Wild caught Cobra pike cichlids from Rio Tapajos

Crenicichla acutirostris - a very cool, super skinny pike cichlid!

Crenicichla vitatta - these were wild caught from Paraguay

This giant pair of Crenicichla cincta were photographed at Belowwater's Montreal facility.

Crenicichla lenticulata - my all-time favourite pike cichlid! These guys show all the colours of the rainbow with an iridescent sheen all over!

These were wild caught from Brazil's Rio Negro. The lenticulata from Rio Negro are the nicest looking of the various collection locales.
