Peacock cichlid?

I am curious if anyone can tell me more about this particular cichlid. I also have female, which looks like a baby large mouth bass. I got both of them at Petland a couple of months ago. They had the tank labeled "peacock cichlids". I googled images of peacocks but can not find any with even similar coloration. Any ideas what I have here? They are about 2.5 inches long at this point. Still pretty young.

They look like flameback Hap's from Lake Victoria. Peacocks are from Lake Malawi.

Thanks for the help! After googling your suggestions and looking at several pics, I'm leaning towards the red back scraper.
