He might. It's hard to predetermine Mbuna behavior. Almost all are aggressive towards each other. Some more than others. Just provide plenty of hiding spots. You probably will have to overcrowd the tank a bit as to dilute aggression as things progress.
Research Mbuna community tank stategies.

Yellow tail Acei are Mbuna. One of the more easy going types. Not sure about the peacock.
Maybe a Sunshine Peacock or Yellow Jake Peacock.
