Please identify this Peacock Cichlid

Postby draper1221 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 3:57 pm

I got this Peacock from a reputable online breeder that identified him as a Stuartgranti Flavescent. The fish was thrown in for free on a larger order of Peacocks as an incentive for me to accept an airport pickup rather than a shipment to my house. I know he is not a Flavescent but expect he is a hybrid of some Stuartgranti sub-species descent. I'm thinking maybe a Ngara Flametail/Blue Neon cross. Any opinions would be appreciated.

I would agree to a point. The orange side goes all the way up to the dorsal fin and there is no flame in the tail. The top half of a Ngara is blue.That's why I said a Ngara Flametail/ Blue Neon hybrid. I probably will never know. The breeder bought him in 2012 as a Flavescent which he is clearly not.

Correction the breeder bought his line in 2012. Not this specific fish.
