Its about 5” or 6” right now. Have had him for a month. Fish store called it “Colombian Pike” which i assume to be vague.

Agreed, definitely a sveni. They are nice pike cichlids and can be very personable too, only down side is is that it's hard keeping them with other pike cichlids as they can be very territorial.

Thanks guys how big should I expect him to be? Will he get along with juvenile Datnoids, Needle Nose Gar, plecos?

They can be agreed I’ve toward fish of similar size. Welcome to pikes. Have one group that are fine with catfish and polys. No aggression cause of the swimming poly ( almost double their size). Ur needle nose gar will be a target once bigger. Watch a eye.
Here’s my big female. The catfish is 11 Inches. long.
