One of the tanks I never post about. I got these guys a while back as black stripe pikes(Crenicichla Strigata). I think they are Venezuelan pikes(Crenicichla sp. "Venezuela). Apparently I have done something very wrong with these guys, they eat like there is no tomorrow, but really don't seem to grow much. I am really close to re homing all of them, since if they do start getting bigger they will get way bigger, and I only plan on one really big fish. They are really fun to watch, so I will post a video, and see what you think.

Can you take a still shot? I don't think those are Crenicichla sp venezuela due to the orange/reddish marks in the fins. They might just be Crenicichla lugubris or strigata, which are smaller than Venezuela.

If you get a real good picture, send a message to Vin Kutty on Facebook. He's an expert on pikes and their identification.

Thanks Rock, I will try and get a good one, but these guys are pretty active and don't like to pose. I had to take a couple of videos to get a somewhat decent one. These guys are like torpedoes!
