Well the only other African Cichlids my LFS has are peacock cichlid and Auratus Cichlids ... how about them :) I read up on the Peacock and some people said they are agressive and others said they aren't. I can't find any good info on Auratus Cichlids.

So far I only have Yellow Labs and Acei on my list.

Yellow labs and acei are a good combo. Have you considered ordering online? that would really open your options up. Anyway again auratus are extremely aggressive fish and are not recommended. Some peacocks would be ok with mbunas but it depends on the species. You have to tell me what speceis specifically they have and I can tell you if they are compatible. Auratus are extremely common fish I doubt you would have much problem finding info on them. Just google auratus and you should get tons of results.

I have never really considered ordering online, especially because I live in Canada. I will have to figure out what kind of Peacock's the LFS has next time I go there.

I guess I will start stocking with Yellow Labs and Acei, and then check out online or other fish stores that could have a larger selection.

Thanks for all the help.

Sorry to bring you back to this but the LFS just got some Blue Orchid Peacock Cichlids in (good timing )

Any good?

Aah one of the smaller growing peacocks. These guys will do very well with your stock I would get them. Aim for one male and like 3 females. They have a mild temperament too which is good.

Sounds good, luckily I found another fish store nearby with a much bigger selection that has African Cichlids go on sale weekly

Thanks again

Thanks again

Woot




The fish store was all out of Acei, so I picked up these guys :).

The store also had a bunch of types Peacocks that weren't listed on their site, I can't remember what they were called but I will call tomorrow and figure out and post them here to see, as after today I don't exactly trust the employe's choices.
