Before I knew better I let my wife pick out a OB peacock to go in my Mbuna tank. Getting rid of it is not an option. I started out in this hobby with a 10 gal with a colbalt blue, red zebra and OB peacock(told you I didnt know better). Contrary to popular opinion, I never had an issue with aggression between the OB and Mbunas.
I ended up upgrading to a 55gal and added a fish here and there and ended up losing fish here and there, but the origional fish still continued to thrive.
In the process of trying to figure out why the fish died, I found this site and quickly learned the error in my ways. So I found a sponsor to bring my fish total to 12 with 1m-3f ratios, all the while wondering if my OB would continue to thrive when the new fish arrived.
The day before the new fish arrived, The OB developed a white spot on one of its gills. Not knowing what it was, and not wanting to take a chance with the new fish arriving the next day, I set up my original 10gal as a hospital tank and moved the OB into it. I decided to treat it as Ich, although I'm still not sure what it was, with salt and 86 degree water, and it cleared up. It is now healthy and ready to go back into my 55 gal. I'm worried that it being out of the tank and the addition of the new fish, putting it back might lead to the aggression that is common between the OB peacocks and Mbuna.
Now being totally addicted to this hobby, I want to upgrade to a 90gal. My thought is to keep the 55 gal going and moving the mbuna to a 90.
So my long winded question is, If I put the OB in the 55gal, what type of fish do I add to it? Haps and peacocks?
I know OB peacocks are not a popular fish here as it is a hybrid, but I'm hoping someone has some experience with them as my wife won't let me bring it back to the LFS. Plus its an excuse to get another tank!!
