Specifications

Overview

The Red Peacock Cichlid comes from years of breeding and is not a naturally occurring strain. It is red in coloration and has the same form as the other Peacock Cichlids of the same family.

The male displays the typical egg spots on the anal fin and is typically more colorful than the female, especially during breeding.

The Red Peacock Cichlid does well in an aquarium that is at least 200 litres with plenty of rocks for territories and a sandy bottom. The males are usually only aggressive towards their own species unless their territory is invaded upon.

Provide a ratio of 3 to 4 females to one male. Again, provide multiple females for the male, as it will take the stress off of the female carrying the eggs.

Incubation is approximately three weeks, at which time the female will release the fry. Provide the fry with newly hatched brine shrimp and finely ground flake food.

The Red Peacock Cichlid should be fed a variety of both meaty and vegetable-based foods. Feed live and frozen brine shrimp along with Spirulina-based flake and pellet foods.
