Congrats on the new fish! Yes, pics :)

I'd try mail order but I still wouldn't stop going to this one small petstore in town, there are a couple people there that really really know alot about african cichlids and are super helpful with tankmate selections, they even pull out some Ad Konigs books and shoot the brease about favorite fish. When you find a store with cichlidaphiles working there I don't mind paying extra. Profit isn't a dirty word when it keeps reputable places open for business.

taking pics of the fish is more difficult than I thought! I'll post more later once I figure out how to get good shots.

I hope that I am allowed to post info about where I got my peacocks. If not I apologize and understand if this post must be removed. But this is such a great deal!!!

The person I purchased my peacocks from has another ebay auction. The item number is: 200215464671. Just type in african cichlid fish and he will be the first auction to view. His shipping price went up since last time I ordered from him but it is still the lowest I have found.

My fish have been in my tank for over a week and I have not had any issues with ich or fungus. They all are coloring up nicely and eating well. I gotta talk my husband into getting me a bigger tank so I can add more peacocks! I am addicted!!!!! :drooling:

Not a great shot but that is all I have right now. I was trying to get better shots of the individual fish so I only took this one shot. My tank is only a 46 gallon bow front. I am going to upgrade to a 72 gallon bow front in the next few months.

Oh, and all my rock is lace rock. I have Black Sand for my substrate. I run a 304 Fluval Canister filter and a 300 watt stealth heater. Most of the plants are live. I am trying to get some more water onion for the back and eventually replace the silk grass plants. I just did a water change and that is why my water is a bit cloudy. I stirred up some of the sand in the process. :roll:

I think your Peacocks would look better if you put them on a natural colored sand instead of using black sand or gravel.

Make sure you don't overfeed your Peacocks. They don't expend alot of energy. Only feed them once a day.

Your peacocks look great! Nice find!
