An all-male species tank is quite difficult and require a lot of work--just so you know before you get into it. Some males won't color up all the way.
No, not necessarily. The trick is to get males that are already showing color or mature males that are already colored up. Also, it helps to get one of each variety/different color. -If you do, you'll have greater chances that ALL males will color up.

an all-male tank is always aggressive so I'd do less if you went that way (more like 18 total).
They're not aggressive compared to mbuna. :wink:
I would stock less peacocks because of to their size- not aggression. Overstocking can actually help curb aggression.

Again, best thing to do is aim for peacocks that do not look alike in coloration and introduce them in large groups or all at once (never singles). There may be some that don't play nice so be prepared to remove them, but majority of them (providing they differ in color) should get along. Keep in mind that the Jakes will be on the more aggressive side, but, others such as the Benga, and Ngara are on the docile side and mostly keep to themselves.
