Crenicichla sp. Jatapu

16. July 2013

We were able to import a very special pike cichlid, belonging to the closer relationship of Crenicichla strigata/marmorata/lenticulata. Only one pair reached us, which is currently 20-25 cm long and thus not fully grown yet. According to the well known specialist for pike cichlids, Jens Gottwald (who supplied us a nice picture of a fully grown female of that species originating from the Rio Uatuma, in which the Rio Japura flows into, our sincere thanks for that!), this undescribed Crenicichla from Jatapu/Uatuma is closest related to Crenicichla strigata.

For our customers: the animals have code 671056 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade. Only one pair available!
