Crenicichla regani  Ploeg, 1989

The pike cichlids wild leaves (Crenicichla regani) are found in the Amazon in lakes or places of flooded forest with little current, hidden between branches and leaves.

In nature, these small predators feed on insects, larvae, aviums and small fish. In the aquarium, they eat ration and frozen for carnivores, but they love crushed shrimps and live foods.

This species of pike cichlid presents sexual dimorphism, where the females are smaller and contain in the dorsal fins one or more ocelli; since the males are bigger, their fins have no ocelli and are more pointed.

The pike cichlids wild leaves are very aggressive among themselves and with small or slow fish. It is advisable to keep only one couple per aquarium and add to them only larger fish.

During the breeding period, the couple becomes more colorful and aggressive, does the ritual of the court, puts eggs in a cavity of wood or stone that hatch after approximately 3 days.

The aquarium used by the couple of pike cichlids wild leaves must have more than a meter, own trunk, stones, floating plants or places that provide shelter, as these fish prefer to hide and do not like intense light
