Name That Peacock!

Mon Jul 01, 2019 12:46 pm

I adopted a Peacock for my Male Hap/Peacock Tank.

He looks like a German Red to the eye. His body is redish in tint. But when I photograph him, he has a yellow tinge in the body too.

So I ask you, experts... German Red or Sunshine Peacock? That's my guess. Any other guess is also appreciated.

Sunshine is widely used for more than one species. Looks like a Aulonocara Baenschi Benga to me.

I don't think you can call him a precise species/ collection point. A man made red peacock doesn't have to be red, they fall from yellow-ish to orangish to almost reddish.
