    It looks like a peacock but I'm not very knowledgeable with Africans.

    99.9% certain that it is Aulonocara Jacopfreibergi. Doesn't really matter which species it is really they all have much the same care requirements & temperament. It's only the size that varies. All Peacocks are from Lake Malawi.

    Most peacocks prefer meaty foods. Thats one thing to keep in mind when stocking Malawi cichlids, just don't mix them with the mbuna.

    That's simply a matter of feeding correctly. Been there done that. No problem.
