Those last pics of the crenicichla were so bad.. I just had to take some new ones today.. and also some of my wild caught Peru ex-Cichlasoma festae female.. she’s awesome!

First some pix of the female festae cichlid.. She’s about 4-5″ long, eating everything in sight.. origin: Rio Tumbes, Peru..

And these are the dwarf pikes.. Crenicichla species.. Haven’t properly identified these yet, cuz they were shipped from Brazil as Crenicichla regani, but they’re not regani.. may be notophthalmus.. or ???.. the females have amazing dorsal fins.. lots of red.. a couple of the females have a reddish tinge to the body as well..

This is a really bad picture of the Peru male festae cichlid.. There’s algae on the front glass cuz he doesn’t have a pleco in with him (unlike the female), and I don’t want to go in there and disturb them at the moment.. They just spawned and fry are free-swimming right now.. Even thru the algae u can tell he’s a pretty good looking boy!

Laetacara araguaiae.. These also wild caught.. I gave these away a few months ago.. They were starting to get beat up by the young festae and they were too nice to use as dithers..
