Thanks so much for refraining from posting while I was still doing the profiles. I also apologize for using that C. lugubris pic which apparently belongs to P. Burnel. However, I'm sure he will not blame me for using his pic to spread knowledge of pikes around!

Bros, please feel free to post any comments and constructive criticism! Thanks!

Crenicichla Lepidota is an easy common species to go for.

Nowadays, the cheapest and most common pike cichlid around in shops is C. lucius - only S$5.00 for a 2" specimen. The best thing about it is, this species is one of the most brightly coloured of all Saxatilis pikes, with brilliant red on the fins (although this red coloration only develops once it gets to 3.5" or more)! C. lucius, like most, if not all, Saxatilis pikes, is fairly hardy as well.
