i think my red zebra may have breed with my female peacock is that possible? if so i heard the fry could be sterile and more aggressive? just trying to get some info i have no issue breeding peacocks but never dealt with cross breeding

the ob (orange blotch) peacock was bred from breeding an ob zebra male with a female aulonocara species... so yea its def possible...i know people get all worked up over this and consider it tainting the blood line.. but im sure it would make for some interesting looking fish...

The fry are likely to be fertile...that is the problem. :lol:

Fishkeepers do report that hybrids are more aggressive.

The origins of OB peacocks is rather speculative in nature, and could have come from a number of combinations.
