Finally caught the peacock and got it moved before the Jewels could kill it. Here is his tank.... you can see she is small or else a juvie. Also the spots or is that holes from being pestered on top fin and in middle of tail????

Since these pictures I am noticing possible red showing on anal fin some the "holes" referred to above are becoming more pronounced. Also a blue hue on forehead to under the redish orange tips on top fin rays. The body is showing some reddish undertones behind the stripes.

Could it be a juvenile not in color yet or is it def a female? Got quick measurement... under 1.75"

It sure got active. Staying out in open except when I approach too quickly. Swimming in and out and through the rocks.

She finally has some peace and quiet in there - yay!

As for the spots, it looks like she has a case of ICH - or are they actual holes?

If it looks like she's been sprinkled with salt, it's ICH.

No definitely not ICH!! They appear to either be holes or light blue colored (almost transparent) spots. It appears they change color when she passes between the rocks and the green plants. ICH would not do that. It is like I can see through them but they appear a bit opaque.

Also she is getting some reddish blotches becoming apparent on her anal fins when she flares them and light is hitting her right.
