"the least aggressive of peacocks"

I have had mine for a few months now and although not a tyrant, he is tank boss....the only guy giving him a run is my Lwanda which is a bit smaller.

Anyway, to date one of the most stunning fish i have kept, its not so much the yellow blaze but the bluish/purplish color of the body. very underestimated fish.

i suggest you try it.

I have blue orchids (kandese), which are also considered a mild and "dwarf" peacock. Mine, fortunately, read their write-up and are incredibly nice to each other. I actually have a colony of 3M-5F in a 45 gallon with no issues and all three males beautiful and big!

My male is pretty calm but he will set the other fish straight when he needs to. I agree the coloration on the body is quite fantastic. Great fish. Growing out some babies with more on the way.

Mine has not colored up. I've grown him out from very small, had him for about 14-16 months. He's in an all-male setup and never been dominant. Thinking about putting him in another tank for a while to see if he colors up for me. Disappointing because I really like the maylandi/kandese color patterns.
