Red Johanna Pike Cichlid Wild Rio Negro (Crenicichla johanna ‘Rio Negro’)

$69.99

The Red Fin or Johanna Pike is a large growing species found throughout much of the Amazon basin, where it tends to inhabit soft, acidic waters. Like many large Pike Cichlids, they are territorial and can be aggressive towards tankmates so any other fish in the aquarium should be chosen with care. With their large adult size and outgoing nature, they make excellent subjects for a species tank or in a suitably large display with other South American cichlids. The Rio Negro locale is among the most vividly colored variants, exhibiting a striking pattern of red bars as adults.
