I have no clue, you'll need hukit or freak gecko in on this one. Hybrid African if I had to guess.

I just went through this with a friend of mine, peacocks are open water swimmers so it's recommended to have a longer tank (4ft +) what size tank, peacocks are a sub hap species , they mix well with labs, do not mix with mbunas, as for the shark I cannot find anything and I would rehome him before they kill him.

I have a 55gallon aquarium brought just for the peacock. I never got one before so it's my first experience with it. For the shark i'll put him back in his original aquarium

I would personally get a few more male peacocks because they are social fish and become lonely, you could get one female but i wouldn't get 1 female and more males because there will be sexual aggression, if you get more males there might be territorial aggression but that's where over stocking is a bonus cause there's no terrortiry to claim.

Warning: At least 5 x Orange Peacock are recommended in a group.
Warning: Orange Peacock is not recommended to be with Shark Catfish - lake Malawi species should not be mixed with other groups including mbuna species.
Warning: Shark Catfish is not recommended for your tank - it may eventually outgrow your tank space, potentially reaching up to 14 inches.
Warning: Shark Catfish requires brackish water.

Yw bud I would ask someone more knowledgeable than me in a separate post in cichlid discussion about how many to stock to see how many you should get because the over crowded method is better i just don't personally know how much to over crowd 5 might be plenty.
