Hey guys:

I have a 125 tank with mixed ages/sizes going. I plan on adding some 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 Tropheus juveniles to the tank soon, but my peacocks are starting to get big. I have a male Eureka coming on 3 1/2 (not including tale) and a A. Baenschi (sp?) male at 4'.

What are the chances that a well fed peacock will go after the small Tropheus juveniles for a high priced snack?

I don't think they will as long as your feeding properly i have little clavus in with my peacocks and haps and they don't bother them.
Peacocks are omnivores

Peacocks are carnivores. They typically feed on invertebrates and insect larvae that live in the sand bed. That being sad, pretty much all cichlids are opportunistic, and will eat fry when given the opportunity. It really depends on the size of the peacocks and fry in question.

The tropheus at that size will be fine my clavus are about that size but it seems like the fish dont care about em.

Just make sure that the peacocks are eating as they should and they should all get along just fine.
I was thinking about something stupid when i said omnivors. I was thinking about these gobies im going to be getting.
