The Aulonocara OB / Marbled Peacock cichlid is a very popular hybrid that we recommend for any peacock cichlid tank.This stunning peacock is not native in the lake but a man created hybrid. One of the perks of this fish being a hybrid is no two males are the same. The colors can vary from a vibrant pink, orange, yellow, red or a metallic blue coloration.
