I just picked up 5 new male peacocks(lwanda, ob, red shoulder, ruby red, eureka, all 2"-3") in an auction. These will be added to my current stock for a total of 22 fish. The tank dimensions are 60x18x20. Filtration is covered by 2 Penguin 350's. I do weekly water changes. The overall mood of the tank is laid back. Everyone swims all over freely with no harassment.

Current Hap/Peacock Stock:
OB (2.5in)
Baenschi (3in)
Fryeri (6in)
Fryeri Lumbaulo (3in)
Fryeri OB (2.5in)
Borleyi - red(4in)
Borleyi - gold(3.5in)
T. Reef (4.5in)
Lithobates (3.5in)
Phenochilus (6in)
Taeniolatus (3.5in)
2 Moorii (4in, 3.5in)
Electra (3.5in)
Electra Blackfin Makonde (3.5in)
Melas (2.5in)
Compressiceps (3.5in)

I'm not sure if you're asking for compatibility or stocking level?

The stocking level should be okay, since from what I know about the guys you have, they don't get SUPER big. You'll probably want to up the water change amount to 50%/week once they start maturing to take care of your nitrates.

As long as the stay friendly, I wouldn't worry too much. As they mature, I imagine you'll see things flare a bit; just make sure you have only males and catch the perps quickly. :)
