New Fish (Peacock Cichlids)

Went on a long 6 hour round-trip to a great LFS, only ended up getting 1 new fish which happens to be a 2 - 2.25 inch OB Peacock. Haven't added him to the tank because I'll be heading to an aquarium club meeting tonight to maybe trade my remaining Saulosi for something, then I'll add them both tonight before lights out. Pic is below and updates on 3 other F1 peacocks I picked up a few weeks back

New OB Peacock:


Aul. Stuartgranti Ngara, showing some blue on the face and can't see in the pic, but some yellow/orange on the side by gills:


Sunshine Peacock, still doing good, more and more yellow showing up:



Blue Neon Peacock, showing a touch of blue on the face and yellow on the side:

Agreed. I don't like many OB's but that one is very nice.

Thanks fellas, I too weren't into OB's but this guy had great color, shape, and a nice purple sheen all over the body that you can only see in person

Why the trade? everything okay with the Saulosi

Yeah, I actually got Msobo Deep and didn't want to cross breed, plus I had primarily all Saulosi males.
