I only recently discovered the African Fairy Butterfly Peacock, from Otter point in Lake Malawy. What makes it stand out from other reds and blues Peacocks or Haps, is the bright Orange coloring around on all finnage, the blue face, and white icing on the top fin. I have two juveniles in a 'Grow out' tank, as they don't fair well with big cichlids. However, they are quite beautiful, and curious little fellows worth checking out!
