Cleveland Metroparks Zoo Cichlid ID

Went to the Cleveland zoo today and saw some awesome looking african cichlids in one of the aquarium exhibits and I don't know what they are! I think I saw their name saying Red Humpback Cichlid, but I googled it and can't really find anything. Any ideas? Click image for larger version
