Now In stock RARE Cobra Pike   This highly attractive fish is occasionally sold to aquarists in North America as "Tapajos Red" or sp. Tapajos II.   Paraphrasing Oliver Lucanus' "When the first pikes came out of Rio Tapajos, C.acutirostre was the first. At that time no one knew what was what and acutirostre was shipped as species I. Later the red species came out and were shipped as species II. The Cobra Pike which I can make no sense of till today, was shipped as species III (but only a few were exported). The species II is quite similar to Xingu I as adults, but not colorful as young fish. The cobra pike, as adult looks similar to Xingu II, but smaller as an adult, only the young are spectacular."
