Preferred Water Conditions: Will acclimatize to a wide range of conditions. pH: 6.5-8.0

Care: Pike are a highly predatory fish eating solely other fish and aquatic animals.
They do have the potential to grow to 120cm in the right conditions.
As their diet is mainly fish some consideration should be given to their food source in your care, ideally live fish, but they can be trained to take dead fish especially as they get to maturity.
Pike are found in both lakes and rivers in the UK, but do require high water quality and can be sensitive to prolonged periods of heat (above 20 deg C).
