Hi, the peacock was bought from a lfs about ten months ago and had quite intense orange and blue around the face, i was assured by the owner that it was a male. Except it lost it's colour and only now does it appear to be coming back, total length 4 inches.

The elongatus chalosi was given to me by a friend after his impressive male bred with some of his females, we believe them to be genuine chalosi and the male looks like most online reference. We chose this as it appeared the most male like of the juvys. but six months in my tank and i'm thinking it's a female. total fish length is 3 inches

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Hi, does nobody have any idea? or does the thread name sound weird? Could the moderator please change the name of this thread to 'what sex are these africans'. Thanks
Hi, and thanks for the feedback. To the question 'are there any other similar peacocks in the tank?. Yes a male Sunshine Maleri who has had full colour for the last ten months.
It was my first tank and is a community tank there are several mubna and peacocks together and Tangs etc etc as i found it hard to say no when i first started in the hobby a year ago.
I'll definately post any changes if they happen. Thanks R
