Oh okay thanks! I saw a couple peacock ones at pet smart yesterday but they weren’t colorful like those. So knowing they take time to color up is good. I have lots of reading to do. Is Cichlid society a website to order from?
My local fish store has a bunch in stock all the time. From juvenile to full bloom. I got mine cheap. They are a pretty fish, but if you're wanting an active fish as well, this ain't the one. They mostly stick around one spot during the day, and seem to be active more.after the lights go out.
Cichlid society is a fish club. Lots of states have fish clubs and some are goldfish clubs, some are cichlid clubs, some are rainbowfish clubs and some are just aquarium societies that cover everything fish related.
If you google fish clubs or cichlid society in you area, it should throw out a few clubs/ societies.
I'm not sure because I haven't ordered peacock cichlids. It's my dream to do it one day so I've researched it a lot, but just don't have the space right now. I have ordered other fish from aquaticarts.com which I was really happy with. I also ordered fish from aquabid which I was happy with. Not sure if they do peacock cichlids, but I would imagine they do. Worth checking out.
Wow beautiful!! Thank you. Yes reach out when they’re ready. I did just order some fish. I was tired of wasting trips to the pet stores to leave empty handed. So I placed an order with World Wide Pets for peacocks and rainbow fish. Oh and 2 Clown Plecos! They will deliver once the weather is a bit warmer overnight. I hope they survive!
