I found 3 things were important to Peacocks - a good tight cover glass (I
lost more from jumping out than all other causes combined), pH (neutral to
above) and food ( they are carnivores and seem to need live or at least

Also remember that they are territorial so enough space and cover helps -
BTW it always was interesting to see how variable the amount of black in the
females anal fin could be. This is usually the earliest sex difference to
become evident - just occasionally there is none and you need to rely on
body shape, fin size, colour etc and you need more mature fish for that.
