Just picked up 12 peacocks and one or two haps. All about 3.5 inches. Super colourful but starting to think they're juiced. He sell his "Special food" and certain they've been feeding white crane or a liquid hormone.

Started to get into the malawi scene and have been doing a good amount of research. I don't know the origin of where this private seller gets his stock but seems to sell out very quickly. One of my friends has had about 15 off him mixed in with his big cichlids and all have lost the colour, maybe that's his dominant taking colour..?

Will be a bit disappointed if Mike start graying out which I'm sure they probably will.

Any thought?

Interesting. Absolutely beautiful fish - and some have such rich color I can see why you would think they are being juiced.

I would sent an email to the seller and ask for a "Nutrition" label of his special food - to check for fillers, etc. That might help you narrow down what is going on!
