Males have orange and yellow on its body. Their anal fin is light orange or yellow. The dorsal fin is darker orange. Most do not develop as much color as a German red or ruby red. They mostly a less bright orange compared to German Red and Ruby Red. These fish are less common in the hobby than some other peacocks. Ruby Red and German Red are line-bred from this fish years ago.

Last grow out count 11/01/2018. Next grow out count due 11 /23/2018. This fish is no longer being grown out in-house. When the in-house grown fish are gone, they will occasionally be available through my special order program. Prices from the wholesaler will be higher, however. 

Smaller sizes are being discontinued and this fish will only be available in 3-3.75" and larger males from my wholesaler once the smaller sizes are sold out.

Base Price is set to a 2.5 inch Male.

Peaceful to Mildly Aggressive Peacock that mixes well with other Peacocks other than Jacobfreibergi types of a similar color, Haplochromis, milder Mbuna, and milder Lake Victorians in single male tanks. Do not mix different Aulonocara females in the same tank. (See Compatibility Chart)

Best kept in single males in all male tanks. May work in groups of three or more males, though some secondary males may not achieve full color. 75-gallon or larger tank recommended

Best mix of sex for breeding is one male with five or six females. 20-Gallon or larger tank recommended.
