Hi,

We have a Saulosi species tank, we kept it species only due to us starting out with African Cichlids.

My son and I did the tank together he loves red and would love some red in there.

How would we if a good idea at all add a German Red or Ruby Red Peacock just a single male?

Appreciate the time.

What are the dimensions of the tank?

If you have 48x18 and you are not saving fry, a hybrid like dragon blood might work.

In general mbuna are too aggressive for haps and peacocks so the combo of a not-too-aggressive mbuna like saulosi and a more-aggressive-than most peacock like a hybrid has a chance to work. Have a rehoming plan.

I would not try this with a different mbuna, or with saulosi and a german or ruby red. These fish are really more orange than red in person.

The only mbuna that I would consider peaceful enough to go with pure-bred peacocks are Labidochromis caeruleus.
