I'd stay under 20 peacocks. They get sorta big and done need to be crowded like mbuna do. If you're not familiar most do all male peacock tanks so the aggression stays down w no ladies to compete for. The trouble with peacocks is that they all look the same til they get about 2 1/2 inch then males start to show colors. If you buy them small get a few of each breed and then trade off the females. You can start w 30 little ones but I'd weed them out as u get some females. I'd like to try that myself next if my mbuna tank doesn't work out or if I get them grown enough for lotsa credit trade in!

I just bought 3 of the following peacocks:

Lwanda
Baenschi
Stuartgranti Ngara
German Red
Sulfurhead

I'm fairly certain I have 1 male baenschi. Hoping for 1 male from each. If not, 30 gal grow out tank will be ready for batch 2 in another couple weeks
