WOAH! Thomas!

ACTUAL PICTURE IS OF MY MALE!

I took that picture(done with a Canon 60D and on-board flash) and I have more!

He is gorgeous and one of the fry from my first brood is a spitting image of him @ 3 inches long after 5 months!

hey Scot, a few months ago i bought 25 of your german red fry. although they could be classified as juvies now at 2-3 inches, they seem to be showing no color. do german reds take longer than normal peacocks to show color, or is it just unfortunate that i have all females?

i bought lemon jake peacock fry 3 months later and my male has colored up very nicely, can't say the same for the german reds though.

please let me know what you think. thanks!

Good question.

In my experience, most (not all) Aulonacara males (including German Red Peacock) take longer to show their colours.

Could be a few factors at play here.

You might have a dominant male Aulonocara (any coloured peacock) in the same aquarium.

The size of your tank matters too. 55g or over is preferable. The larger the better.

The only way to tell for sure is to sex your fish by venting them. Check out this site on venting.

I have the same issue with the first brood from my German Red breeding pair. I have one male and he is alpha and coloured in a grow-out tank with 20 of his siblings and none are showing any colour. There are also 20 other assorted Africans in this aquarium. I'm sure you have more males. Do the venting test to be sure.

I also found this about colouring up.

When I originally acquired 5 Male peacocks at 3-3.5 inch, only one (the German Red) had a tiny bit of colour on him. He turned out to be the Alpha male in the aquarium. The other 4; a female and three males. The three males didn't show colour until 4-5 inches big and they were always harassed by the alpha male.

Hope this helps.

BTW. How are your 25 Metriaclima greshakei "Ice Blue" you purchased from me at the same time? They colour up & breed a lot earleir than peacocks.

the greshakei's grow much faster than the peacocks. although i cannot say much about them as i haven't seen them in a while (i didn't take the greshakei's, my friend that came with me did), i did have 3 mixed in the same bag as the german reds and those are at about 3 inches, showing yellowish fins and some blue
