The second pic is of an OB peacock. I want to say the fish in the third pic is a Protomelas sp.

i thought ob means orange blotch?
It generally does, but since the OB peacock is a man made species, there is quite a bit of variation on color. The males also usually het some blue mixed in with the orange and black as well.

here is a pic of my OB peacock male

He is about 5inches now (including tail). he started out with just the orange and black-brown. He didn't start to get the blue until he was almost 4inches.

He was pretty dull looking when I first got him from Petco. (SInce they are man-made anyway and he was going in an all male peacock tank, I decided to give him a go)

heres mine when i got him.
hes MUCH bigger now =) and very blue speckledy
his name is Հէգկոհճըդոն

i understand they are hybrids but my other peacock

swims around dominant.

but Հէգկոհճըդոն tends to dwell in the rocks, like a Mbuna.
they are a Mbuna Peacock hybrid right?

anyway to answer the question Հէգկոհճըդոն didnt look very good when i got him,
but now hes beautiful =) just give them time, good water and food XD
