Thanks for the suggestions. Think I'm going with the Walteri for now and will chech out my yellow collars when they grow up.

-- Whatever peacock you like best would be the one to go with, but since you asked: I'd say you can't go wrong with either the A. stuartgranti Ngara "Flametail" or the A. sp. 'lwanda'. Or you could choose my personal favorite, Aulonocara jacobfreibergi Otter Point. I don't fancy the line bred Eureka Red form as much as the natural Otter Point. There is just something about the colors on that fish that are fantastic. Keep in mind, however, that the Otter Point can be a bit nastier than some of the other peacocks. I read somewhere it has to do with their cave dwelling nature. I think it was in Ad Konings' Malawi book. Apparently they are defensive of the limited available territory, whereas the open water Aulonocara have all the room in the world.
-- I also like the look of the Usisya variant of A. stuartgranti, though I've never kept them.

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Philippians 4:8

Both those fish can be a little subtle in their beauty so the next fish should be flashy.

I would love to see a picture of the lethinrops-

Those Annectens can be a little mean, so a tougher Aulonocara will go well - I think some yellow color will complement the dark annectens.

After my male Callochromis macrops decided to torpedo into the side of the tank and kill himself, I have decided to change my 125 show tank back to a Malawi tank. With the help of Rick Borstein I was able to add a LARGE group of Protomelas annectens and my group of lethrinops sp. mbasi. Tank looks pretty nice although I was contemplating adding in a group of peacocks. Maybe Aulonocara walteri. Any thoughts?
