Yeah, we'll give it a few monthes. He's already greedily accepting freeze dried bloodworms, frozen blood worms, and feeders. I'm leaning towards sveni cause of the "eye spot" in the rear. but he's still a baby so ya never know.

No, not Crenicichla sveni. I'd say its a Crenicichla alta or a Crenicichla menezesi. That pike has strange features; the mouth is not that of a saxatilis pike, while the markings indicate that its a saxatilis pike. I'm quite sure its a saxatilis pike, however.
