I'm not good with identifying, but it looks like a shovelnose redtail hybrid.

It's going to grow massive.

I agree with 75 gallon Discus Tank, it looks like a shovelnose/red tail hybrid.

It will grow very large, and require a huge tank.

Just looks like a juvenile Tiger Shovelnose, Pseudoplatystoma tigrinum, to me. Youngsters have a different color pattern than adults. Still a very large species when fully grown.
