there exist anything like a dreamfish even in our days? Well, at least
Crenicichla zebrina from Venezuela is a hot candidate! We were able to
import two specimens of this top rarity which have a length of 15-20 cm.
So far no external features are known for that species to separate
males from females. But one of our specimens is much more slender, has a
much larger humeral spot and a comparatively deeper red colored throat.
We think that this specimen is a male and the other one a female.
