amazing fish man, that's the reason to get a larger tank, with peacocks you can stick to 48 inch tanks with haps you need s larger tank for most especially the protomelas (which are some of the most beautiful species of haps)

i do find that peacocks tend do not have dark black stripes, if they have stripes it's more of a color shading and not actual black stripes

also in peacocks you notice the color is usually right behind the gills and down the back, or the entire body, only the flametail really has all of it's color on the underside

one other key thing, peacocks only show two colors on their body, usually blue and some bright color like yellow orange or red

haps if you see more than two colors it's either victorian or a hap (generally speacking)
