Thanks, that was my guess as well, but I’m not overly knowledgeable on the various types
Don’t worry. 99% of the time I’m make it up as I go lol!

I think that's it. I looked on the ID thread and it looks exactly like that. Im sure OP already knows, but these guys hit 16+ inches, so you should have a minimum of a 180 (6'x2'x2') for the pike cichlid when its grown up

I agree, I’m 99.9% positive that the Venezuelan was the correct ID. At the moment my tank is 60 gallons shy of that, but I have a while since all my fish are 3-6” and I have plans for a 300. If plans fall through, my LFS has a 1500g donation display tank. Should be good tho, I have a few connections for tanks where I live.
