He's 8" at the momemt so may grow a little but could well be fully grown.

Crenichicla sveni- a pike cichlid. Originating from colombia and one of the middling sized species.

Why do I never find anything remotely that interesting in any of my lfs...?

 Re: Shakira - Crenicichla Sveni

Pike cichlids and a lot of the other south and central americans are not that common in lfs due to lack of demand.
I think this is due to sizes and often aggression levels of the fish there by calling for a more dedicated keeper. Not many people want a 5-6ft tank with only a few fish in it.
Keep looking the special fish are out there!

 Re: Shakira - Crenicichla Sveni

In lfs
as said they are not that common but you can find them if you keep looking or alternatively order them
