Can Be Aggressive Or Friendly: Basic Knowledge About Aulonocara “OB Peacock” Hybrid


Aulonocara “OB Peacock” Hybrid

  • Common Name: OB Peacock, Marmalade Cat Peacock
  • Location Collected From: This fish is not part of the Genus Aulonocara it is a Hybrid and does not exist in the Wild.  This fish is thought to be a hybrid between Otopharynx lithobates (AKA red top Aristochromis) and a Psuedotropheus species probably a Psuedotropheus zebra.  This fish is also recognized by the American Cichlid Association as a hybrid and is banned from being entered into their annual show or being listed for sale in their trading post.
  • Approximate Size: Males reach a size of about 4 inches with females staying smaller.
  • Food: Not picky.  They will eat just about anything from flake, to pellet and even frozen or live foods.
  • Water Conditions: They like to have a pH between 7.6 and 9 with a temperature between 76 and 82 degrees.
  • Tankmates: I have seen them kept in with many different species.  I have seen some of these fish that were very mild and were being used as dither or target fish, and I have also seen some of these fish that were very aggressive and would quickly kill a Psuedotropheus zebra or Psuedotropheus demasoni.
