Crenicichla sp. Inirida IV

7. November 2013

For the first time ever we were able now to import another species of pike cichlid from the surroundings of Puerto Inirida in Colombia. This species is illustrated and described in the German book “Die Buntbarsche Amerikas Bd. 3” by Rainer Stawikowski and Uwe Werner as Crenichla sp. Inirida IV.

This is also a very beautiful fish. Males have a double row of light spots on the flanks which are missing in females. Our specimens are 8-12 cm long and sexually fully differentiated.

For our customers: the fish have code 673594 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.

Of the species are only very limited numbers available!
