Sunshine Peacock is an aquarium strain of a peacock cichlid from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa. It is an aquarium strain of uncertain origin. We acquired this strain from a hobbyist in 2005. Males often reach 15cm (6 in.). Females are considerably smaller. Males are bright yellow with blue faces and have blue and orange markings in the fins.. Males sport pointed anal and dorsal fins and elongated pelvic fins. They also have a few gold egg-spots on the anal fin. Females are drab silvery-gray color with faint dark vertical bars. Females, unlike the males, don’t have pointed fins. This fish’s ancestors hail from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa.
