i was planning on doing a peacock/hap 75g but i found a good deal on a complete 40g breeder setup that i may jump on instead. how many peacocks/haps would do well in a 40g breeder? would it be better as a Mbuna tank instead?
I agree there is no way you will get a hap in there and 6-7 peacocks is pushing it.
I would also have to say tha with 2 male peacocks there is going to be a dominent and a sub. The sub is going to me tormented to death and have no color.
I would go with 1 male and 4 females.
You will need a filter for a much bigger tank to keep the water perfect. Anything less and your fish may parish from stress or aggression or both.
good luck and remember it is possible! :thumb:
i have 8 electric yellows, 2 maingano, 1 yellow tail acei, 1 lithobate and a bgk in a 160L tank (40g) and am running a 1500Lph canister on it and i dont have a single problem with aggression. but that said imo i wouldnt go straight haps or peacock breeding setup in a 40g, rather go for mbuna and when you get a 4ft tank or bigger, the haps and peacocks will jsut outgrow it.
