I would stay away from the africans from the lakes for the most part. They usually need to be kept a certain way like in a harem or by pairs. I certainly wouldn't keep a peacock by itself. Plus I am pretty sure a peacock would make short work of your guppies. Actually you already have an african in your tank. Kribs are african cichlids. I would get more until you have a pair and go with those.
