Hi everyone, I have a male of this variety, and he is around two years old, he has maxed out at between 3.5"-4". I seem to remember seeing some others in person that were at least 5" long, but I also know that there have been some being sold as type north that were believed to be actually more like a Lethrinops species. Any input from anyone with experience with this fish would be appreciated, Thanks! here are a couple pics of him.

Hi!
Great looking fish! :thumb:
No-the Chitande type North is not a dwarf. I also have one and he's just over 6 inches.

The tank size and frequency of water changes play a part in size, as well.

You're welcome!
You know, he's not a runt- just small boned! :p Actually, he looks good, regardless of his size and he's not THAT small; he's within "breeding standards." (<--Dog world lingo, LOL!)
He looks better than my mine, that's for sure!

I'll have to try to get a better picture this weekend. This is the only one I have and it's poor, heck half of his face is cut off! He's in the far left side of the picture. I left the 5" Electra in it so you can get an idea of his size though. They were shot under actinics so that explains the light/quality.

Wow, he is a big dude! Mine is a feisty little guy, he chases away my 7"Empress from his favorite spot, funny to see, I just hope he doesn't get too cocky!

@floridagirl, thanks for the response, he is in a 72 bow with 12 other peacocks and smallish haps. I generally do a 50-60% water change weekly.
