Hello all, today I bought my 3 2'' oscars and my 6'' geo juruapri, 4'' geo brasilnelis, 3'' geo altfron/suri, and 3'' geo balazinii a new tankmate. Today I bought an unided pike for only 15 dollars. This pike cichlid is only 5'' and is peacuful. He eats like a pig and gets along with the geos and oscars. My lfs told me they did not know what the pike is. So I will turn to you guys. I'll have pics of him soon.
