Oh wow, I think I just saw these on a craigslist ad the other day. Hold on...

http://nh.craigslist.org/pet/4396511560.html



According to the ad they are "Pike Livebearer (Belonesox Belizanus) "

Not 100% sure (the ones in the ad have spots but yours do not) but they look very close? Someone else may know for sure though!
