Looking again at the sign it looks like it was supposed to say "Surinamensis" which is a species of Geo. Usually anything labeled a Surinamensis is mis-labeled bc those are very rare.

Yes, anything labeled Geophagus surinamensis is almost always a similar but completely different species. I think the most common substitute is a G. altifron, but don't quote me on that. There are quite a few "suri" type Geos that look practically identical.

judging by the ones showing color in that tank, i would guess they were altifrons.

i think your rght SK, i believe altifrons is the common one.
