Hey, my names is Drew and I am new to fish and to the forum. I bought a few cichlids on christmas eve and they were in the african peacock tank at the lfs. I have no clue what type of peacocks they are because two of them are brown with light black stripes and they are starting to show a little blue. The third one I bought is almost see through and has orange spots and dark orange vertical bands. It is also starting to show a hint of blue pigment in the fins. all of them range from 1.5"-2.5" and I have them in a 30g tank. I know it's not ideal but it's what I have for now..

First is Hybrid Peacock of some sort, if it really is orange like that. Nobody knows for sure what the parentage is. No scientific name applies.

Second I think is a mass market quality "Red Empress Hap"... if pure, dunno.

the orange one is starting to get red spots/ stripes around the gills and head and it is also showing a touch of blue in the fins if that helps. both of them seem to be coloring up a bit except for one who remains a dark brown/ green color... i think that one is a female..
