I started a peacock tank in March. I’m patiently waiting for these guys to color up. I have 2 that are starting to really get some good color. They’re about 3-4 inches right now. Just wanted others to share their prized peacocks.

A lot of people will say the don’t/ shouldn’t mix, absolute hogwash. Can perfectly mix if given the right environment and feeding regime :)
Funny you bring that up, I've been eyeing a couple of peacocks to add to my mbuna collection. And isn't the environment the same as the mbuna other than their diet?

Yeah water hardness, kh and ph all the same, mbuna are slightly more aggressive that’s the only difference really
