pikeheads (Luciocephalus) are highly specialized labyrinth fish. They
live as predators in blackwaters of Southeast Asia. Only two species are
known, the “common” pikehead, which occurs on the Malay Peninsula and
in Indonesia, and the Peppermint Pikehead, which is known so far only
from the Province Jambi on Sumatra.
we are able to offer the latter once more. The beautiful fish become
about 10-12 cm long. Due to their feeding habits (they feed exclusively
on live food, preferably shrimps, for feeder fish often transmit
dangerous diseases) and the high demands regarding water qualtiy,
pileheads should be kept by experienced keepers only.
For our customers: the fish have code 424914 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
