What fish is this?

My fish is about 15cm long. It has the body of a Geophagus brasiliensis but that face... It has the face of a parrot. Any ideas? I managed to contact the previous owner who bought the fish as a tiny baby. The whole batch had this same type of face.

Parrots are a hybrid/crossbred fish... is it possible that this is also a hybrid?

There are no commercial hybrids of these to my knowledge. Looks like a brasiliensis with a slightly deformed mouth.
