What in the world is this fish?

So a friend and I were talking fish tonight, and he happened to throw this image at me:

I've googled around and even tried image search to see if i can figure out what in the world this thing is. And now it's bugging me like a song that gets stuck in your head.... I was thinking some kind of triggerfish because of the teeth but...y'know. Noob over here. Any guesses?

It's a flowerhorn, I believe. Not sure what variety. A freshwater hybrid between a bunch of large cichlids.

Yep--I have a couple of cichlids that grow a similar hump.
