One of the most striking of all the Pike Cichlids, the Lenticulata or Spotted Pike is a large growing species found in Brazil, Colombia and Venezuela. Like many large Pike Cichlids, they are territorial and can be extremely aggressive towards tankmates so any other fish in the aquarium should be chosen with care. The Super Orange Spotted Lenticulata is a rare regional variant which exhibits intense orange coloration behind the operculum and around the caudal spot along with extensive spotting on the head and face.
