Need help identifying this Lake Malawi Peacock. I saw him at Petco in the Assorted Peacock tank and thought I'd take him home. Was hoping it was a Dragon Blood Peacock but not so sure. Any help would be awesome!
Just a hybrid, the names are debatable and rather vague. There aren't really "pure" hybrid lines, the fish vary. Doesn't seem like a "typical" Dragon Blood, but if you like the fish you can get him. May not look the same in a few months thou.
Suppose you can call him a "Dragon Blood" if you want to, there are many made up trade names, it is that type of hybrid. Maybe will look like this pic, but don't be surprised if it loses that color at first.
