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

    Looks like a Lwanda Peacock to me...uhh Aulonocara sp. Lwanda I think. :) Pretty little guy!

    Well is an Aulocara for sure but they are a few of these species that kinda look a like. Cichlid forum is down but you can check here.

    After a quick look it looks like Aulocara huesheri or Aulonocara lwanda.

    thanks!! do you know from what lake? I need to restock (or want rather) my tank

    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.
