Place of Origin: Man Made Hybrid
Feeding: High Quality Flake, High Quality Pellets
Temperament: Mildly Aggressive, Conspecific Aggressive
A man made hybrid created by crossing a male Aulonocara species with an OB female mbuna (rock dweller). Our males are brightly colored with a brilliant, blue metallic head. No two males are exactly the same. The body may be dominated by a orange, red or even yellow cast. Eggs spots are common on males. Females typically lack the brilliant blue head and are often a pale yellow with the spots.
The OB Peacock is a peaceful fish and care must be taken if mixed in smaller tanks (less than 55 gallons) with other mbuna or rock dwellers. Peacocks do best with a sandy substrate so they may easily search for food. Peacocks may also be kept with larger, semi aggressive fish.
