Origin[edit | edit source]

In the wild C. johanna comes from S. America including the Rio Orosa in Peru.[1]

Tank compatibility[edit | edit source]

Pikes are fairly aggressive Cichlids and are not compatible with pikes of other species or members of the same species and same sex. Pikes usually do not back down from a challenge.

Identification[edit | edit source]

Wide mouth and nostrils very close to (almost on) upper jaw. This is a distinct feature of C. johanna.
