I'm not much good at pike cichlid ID's but it looks to me like maybe Crenicichla frenata, which will grow to 8-10 inches in length.

Also: no fish in the Crenicichla genus (the pike cichlids) is from Africa. All of these fish come from South America.

Hmm...not many choices. Pikes are ambush predators and will try to eat anything small enough to fit in their large mouths. They're also very aggressive towards other cichlids. If you had a large tank, you might be able to get a group of silver dollars or tinfoil barbs.
