Yes, they will be fine in that size tank.

They are extremely slow growers and it takes around a year for males to fully develop the metallic blue color, females stay a brown color.

They are a stunning fish though when the male does color up.

Keep them in a 1 male to 4 female ratio to help reduce the advances of the male towards a single female.

You can mix almost any peacock with them as they get along with nearly all of them.

They can also be kept with the bigger Haps as well but you only have room for about 1 of them, so I would stick with the peacocks.
