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

    It's going to grow massive.

    I agree with @75g 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.
