Hi everyone,

New to the forum. I kept Africans many years ago and just got back into the hobby. So many more varieties available in my local pet stores than I had 20 years ago.

Wondering if someone can help me identify these two fish that I purchased. One is a peacock, but unsure of the genus/species. They weren't marked and the guy that sold them to me rattled off the latin names so quickly I can't recall what he told me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. seems like Protomelas sp. "Taiwan Reef"

2. "Red Peacock" ... these are unnatural fish which can have a vague history. Yours does seem to have deep color. Suppose you could call him a "German Red Peacock", but the names don't mean much anymore.
