Sunshine peacock

the breeder told me he's a "sunshine peacock" when I look that up on the forum peacock page he's like purplish, yellow, brown (which I really like) but breeder also said he's benga yellow type sunshine which I don't think is right looking at the forum page. Anyone following me or know the difference.. =) what do think he will grow up to look like?

He needs some more time to color up, but he should look like mine

Thank you ma'am, and you might wanna check that length measurement because he should be pretty vibrant already if he's 3"-4" and just give him a few months, what are you feeding him..?

yw I could be wrong.. guess it's hard to tell =) maybe around 3 is more accurate. I would guess my red empress is about 3 with no color.

It's all personal preference really, whatever works for your fish and your happy with, to me it's like reg unleaded, plus, and super, of course super is the shiz but reg does the job and plus is better, but it's all up to the user, I'm just trying this out because its what my lfs use and it's reasonably priced.
