 i  googled  for  'Copadichromis  Borleyi  '.  Yes  they  do  look  more  like  'Copadichromis  Borleyi  '.  I  have  always  had  hard  time  identifying  peacocks.  So  they  are  Haps  not  peacocks....  Smile.  Few  websites  suggest  that  in  the  wild   they  feed  on  planktons  while  others  say  they  are  pure  veggies  feeding  only  algae.  Which  is  true??...  I  want  to  know  their  dietry  requirements...

 I  agree,  those  are  indeed  C.Borleyi  -  Red  fin.  One  small  peice  of  advice,  peacocks/haps  are  extremely  sensitive  to  low  oxygenated  water.  I  lost  my  whole  bunch  due  to  my  filter  shutdown.  They  cant  even  stay  in  a  tub  for  more  than  an  hour  without  a  airpump  in  it.
 
 Today  i  lost  my  Aulunocara  Yellow  Sunshine  due  to  the  same  problem.
 
 Cheers

 @  crazyfish
 thanks  for  the  info  lawrence  .  I  have  another  question  to  u.  Does  the  male  have  a  white  lining  along  the  tip  of  the  dorsal  fin?.  I  have  a  pair.  One  is  brightly  coloured  and  has  white  line  along  tip  of  the  dorsal  fin  and  the  other  is  pale  which  i  suppose  is  the  female.  
 
 @Oscar  lover
 Sorry  for  your  loss.  I  have  a  2000  l/h  filter  running  in  my  50  gallon.  It  gives  a  good  circulation.  So  there  should  not  be  a  problem.  where  in  bangalore  Â did  u  source  your  peacocks  from?.  I  had  been  looking  for  them  from  past  couple  of  months.  Managed  to  get  them  only  couple  of  days  back.  But  they  turned  out  to  be  Haps.  Anyways  they  are  very  beautiful  and  active.  I  want  to  turn  my  tank  into  Hap/  Peacock  only  tank.

 i  got  all  my  red  shoulder  peacocks  from  Salem,  got  the  yellow  sunshine  by  accident  in  Petbonding  -  Rajajinagar.  I  was  lucky  to  bump  into  some  Bucchochromis  sp,  Placidochromis  Milomo  and  Otopharynx  Lithobates  about  a  month  ago  in  Shivajinagar.  These  are  still  juvies  and  are  with  me!!
