Exotic Pike (Esox lucius) Color Morphs





Found these amazing color morphs of Esox Pikes on the internet. I am guessing these are Esox lucius, but it's kind of hard to tell due to the color difference. The first one is the melanistic pike. Pretty sinister looking)))







Leucistic or Golden Pike





I wonder how a northen pike of this amazingly bright color could survive in the wild. Probably wouldn't. And it looks like this Esox pike is living in aquarium.




Finally, an amazing super green northern pike))) 



If anyone knows anything about these amazing fish, please let me know.  I am curious about them.

My Freshwater Gobies in their Biotope Aquarium



Just took some more photos of my native goby tanks. Ok, native to Dniester River))) I have 3 freshwater species of gobies in there: monkey goby, round goby, and toad goby. Toad goby ( Mesogobius batrachocephalus) is the largest one, but he only comes out when he is hugry, so I couldn't get any photos of him this time.  However, I got a bunch of pictures of my monkey gobies and round gobies.


Moneky or sand goby (Neogobius fluviatilis) is showing his chubby face



Two monkey gobies and a round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) hanging out together.

Larger and smaller moneky gobies together near their rock cave)))



Another cool view of the gobies
