75G All Male Peacock/Hap tank

The "German Red" that I have does indeed have a lot of blue through his body.  You may be onto something.  There are other species that have a similar coloration though.  Perhaps someone else can chime in. 

I'm honestly a little suspicious that he's actually a German Red myself.  I know they don't get overwhelmingly red like some of the line bred Ruby Red strains, but he basically has no red at all on him.  The guy I bought him from had several peacocks at his table and had labeled every bag with pictures and even had reference cards for each species out so it seemed like he had his stuff together.

I know they are not blue regals.  I got they from a guy that sells them on craigslist who always sells them on there along with Red jewels stating they were blue regals.  Took them home colored up a while later and yeah........... not blue regals.  They do somewhat resemble your german reds but have alot of blue in their bodies.  Learned a good leson now i have a bunch of females just takeing up space in my 100 gal tank.  Your other fish look great though I especially like the taiwan reef just picked up a trio myself.

@m.pavese The aulonocara Koningsi (Blue Regal) that I have is in the upper left of the same picture with the yellow fish you asked about.  The 1st picture in the 2nd post is the same fish.  He's VERY blue with subtle orange/yellow blended in across his body.  I'm not sure what fish you picked up, but judging by my blue regal it couldn't be confused with yellowish "German Red" you asked about.  If yours are juveniles and haven't colored up I can't really speak to how they mature.  Maybe ScubaDiver can help you with that.

@ScubaDiver  It very well could be, but alas, I did not save the tag to check.  He's a full 6 inches and was REALLY washed out in the bag at the auction.  He colored up nicely in short order once I released him.

@ziggy2 Thanks :)  I obsess about the rocks to an unnecessary degree so it's nice to hear good things abot them.  I always worry that they don't look natural enough.  The stack in the far left is actually piled over driftwood to form a big cave.  I keep the driftwood for the 2 bristlenose plecos to munch on and really wanted a roomy cave for a fish to go hide in if he needed to get away from an aggressor.

@baldtaxguy  Thanks!  It is indeed a busy tank.  Never a dull moment, but no real bullies either.

Hmmm I got 3 males and 5 females and was told they were blue regals hoping to breed them once they started coloring up that is what they looked like.  Great looking fish though!!!  Ive never been to an auction before how much did the males you got go for?

He's a German Red:  blue face, yellowish body, orange tail.  We got him from a guy at the November swap (don't remember his name).  I was really hoping he'd be more red, but at this point it's probably it's probably better he's not given the make up of the rest of the tank.

I have fish that look like the yellow/orange one in the second pic.  Do you know what these are called?

Walteri (from fall auction)


White Knight Ahli(Novemeber swap from Kegger)


That's enough pics for now.  I just want to give a big thanks to all you GCCA guys that go to the trouble to put this together.  Without all the effort you guys go to I would be stuck with "mixed African cichlids" and hormoned peacocks from my LFS.
