How much flow?

My Peacocks won't tell me so I'm asking here......
Do Peacocks like flow and if so, how much?
Or do they prefer a totally calm tank?

Thanks in advance

Ken

I like GPH of 8X to 10X hourly.

I don't think that's the kind of 'flow' he's talking about; I think he's referring to water movement within the tank. In that case, the answer would be that Peacocks will not appreciate having to swim against a strong current constantly; they'd much prefer a tank in which the current is rather gentle. :fish:

Thanks.
It was movement in the tank I was curious about.
