Blue OB Peacock
Blue OB Peacock is aquarium strain derived from the peacock cichlids from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa. It is an aquarium strain of uncertain origin. We acquired this strain from a commercial source in 2003 and have selected for improved blue coloration. Males often reach 15cm (6 in.). Females are considerably smaller. Males are colorful with yellow-pink bodies and fins with bright blue mottling throughout. Females have a brown-gray background body coloration with yellow highlights and blackish mottling. This fish’s ancestors hail from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa.
