There are OB (Orange Blotched) cichlid species in the three major lakes of Africa. Lake Victoria has Paralabidochromis chromogynos, Lake Tanganyika has Tropheus moorii (Kambwimba) and Lake Malawi has Labeotropheus fuelleborni. However, there are no naturally occurring OB Aulonocara (Peacocks) in Lake Malawi. Although now very common in the hobby, OB Peacocks are a man-created fish and shouldn’t be referred to as an Aulonocara species. OB Peacocks are most likely a cross between an Aulonocara and an OB mbuna. The exact mixture is unknown and there are probably different combinations that make up what is known as OB Peacocks.
