You're peacocks may be inclined to crossbreed...unfortunately. Not to sure about the Copadichromis crossbreeding i haven't had enough experience with them to answer that but i think they may be inclinded to also.
There isn't much point have two males of the same species either, because you will end up have a sub-dominate male who will fail to colour up to it's full potential.

Or may a trio of Red Empresses? You have a large enough tank for them.
That is a very good point, I kept a trio of Red Empress for quite some time in a tank full of Peacocks and not once did the females cross breed with any of the male peacocks. I'm not saying that it is impossible but i never experienced so that's a good sign. They are also very prolific breeders, before you no it you have a tank full of fry.

The suggestion is definately worth a thought
