Edit: her fins are not torn its just her eye is a little darker and her paler colors make her look sick sorry guys. the male is showing off to her a lot she will follow him but then swim away. I'm hoping they mate

also its less confusing if you call them maingano instead of johanni, which is an entirely different species then what you have

Well I bought them from my LFS as Electric Blue Johanni. Next week I'm off from school again on Monday so I'm going to go back to the store and I'll get more ( if she is still alive) but my tank is pretty full and I don't have that many more places for them to hide so I might get some peacocks which I heard don't hide and I saw some cool ones there today but I didn't want to get to many fish at once so when I go back I'm either getting Johannis or peacocks and that will most likely be the last time I'll get more fish for that tank for a while unless I can get rid of my giant danios

I can attest to this. I have 2 and I had to move the female to my QT tank. She has a severe bite mark. I feel like crap for putting her through this.

Also, I wouldn't mix peacocks and mbunas. I also made this mistake in the past and it didn't work out. They have different care requirements and I've read that they are not as aggressive. However, I bought a red peacock and it showed conspecific aggression. Meaning it only chased one species (my rusty). She would chase him in three full circles around my tank. She drove him into a plant in the corner and wouldn't let him out at all. I had to rehome her.

Make sure you research the fish you intend to buy, so you know it's requirements and it's comparability with the fish you have first tho.
