Was wondering if someone could confirm this fish for me. I believe it is a Blue Peacock (Aulonocara nyassae). I just purchased this fish along with the rest of mine and he is chasing around my Benga Peacock (Aulonocara baenschi). I have included pictures below. Thanks for any help.

It may be an African Peacock, (African and Blue Peacocks might be the same thing). Do u know if it is a male or a female? If it is a female, then I doubt it is a African Peacock.
Anyway, cool fish.

They are both in fact Peacocks, one is Aulonocara baenschi click
-> http://www.aquahobby.com/gallery/e_sunshine.php , for info

The other one is one of the various electric blue species, I am not familiar so I can't track which one it is but look for these in the gallery and visit www.cichlid-forum.com and go search it there. They are common and require large tanks with lots of filtration. The blue one doesn't look too bad but the baenschi looks to have been constantly chased, just post here youre tank info to make sure nothing goes wrong, you don't want to loose these ones they are really beautiful.
