noticed the yellow peacocks they look pretty striking don't they I've heard that they can mix well with the dolphins and they won't interbreed my colony of dolphins will be 8 I've currently paid for 6 of them will pay for the other two and I was thinking of adding four of these which will total 12 what's everyone's thoughts on this and tell me what you think of the peacocks with dolphins

What size tank? That would determine tankmates for your moori.

Please provide the dimensions...the length is most important.

With only 60 inches i would just stick with the dolphins. They get pretty large and would use the whole tank.

Yes that's what I was thinking I'm getting mixed messages though I'm learning that this hobby is rather subjective something to say add more fish is Not Enough but that's fine it makes it more fun if I was to add those fish it would only be to make the tank look a little bit nicer however I have been offered some breeding pairs so in total it'll be about 15 fish but to be honest I would be worried that I am overstocking the tank and also worried that nobody breeds the dolphins seemed to really like their environment right now I may just add to more rather large females I've put the word out and I think that might just be me on that tank let me know what you think
