Absolutely nothing like a Geophagus. It’s a Vieja, probably melanurus.

You are sure it's a Cichlid? Might be a member of the family Centrarchidae. LoL. Very dull coloration, do you know where it's from? How big is it? and can you tell me what it was sold as from the LFS?

I agree that it is a Vieja and I also agree with melanurus. The suggestion of Centrarchid is'nt even worth a real comment.
