Albino Sunburst Peacock

General Background

The Albino Sunburst Peacock is one of the most vibrantly colored Peacock Cichlids. Both males and females tend to have bright colors that are eye-catching in any African Cichlids tank. Albino Sunburst Peacocks are originally from Lake Malawi in eastern Africa. In an aquarium, they are best suited to be paired with other African Cichlids from Lake Malawi that are of similar size and temperament. Some prefer to keep only males so there is less aggression once they reach sexual maturity. If Albino Sunburst Peacocks do breed, the females will hold the eggs and young in her mouth until they are large enough to be free swimming on their own. Being omnivores, Albino Sunburst Peacocks need to have a balanced mix of vegetation and meats or proteins. Commonly spirulina is fed to help keep their gut healthy and avoid compaction which can be deadly. For meat or protein, frozen or live foods are commonly fed.

Feeds 

Albino Sunburst Peacocks are omnivores, meaning they need both plant and animal products in their diet. In order to prevent compaction, which can be deadly, it is important to include vegetation, such as spirulina, into their diet. For animal products, most will feed frozen or live foods such as bloodworms or feeder guppies. A cichlid pellet or flake is also a good choice as long as it provides high protein and vegetation matter that will help maintain a healthy fish.

Tankmates

Like other African Cichlids, Albino Sunburst Peacocks are well suited for a tank with other African Cichlids of similar size and temperament. It is also important to keep Lake Malawi Cichlids together as it decreases the chances of aggression. Other Lake Malawi African Cichlids that are good partners for Albino Sunburst Peacocks include Red Shoulder Peacocks, OB Peacocks, and Red Zebras.

FAQ

"The fish I received do not look like the fish in thepicture. Why is this?"

-         We typically take photographs of one or two fish when we initially get them in. Since we have a large quantity of most of the various species of fish, it would be understandably impossible to provide a picture ofevery individual fish with a specific species. For some of our more rare orlarger fish, the picture listed may be the actual fish that you are receiving.If this is the case, it will be designated by ?WYSIWYG?, meaning ?what you see,is what you get?.

"What happens if my fish arrive dead?"

-         While this is a rare occurrence, it can and willhappen from time to time. Fish are live animals and we cannot ensure that everyone will arrive alive or remain alive. We do ask that if your fisharrives dead (DOA), submit a picture of the deceased fish that is in the bag.We will work quickly with you to resolve the problem. We will offer replacement fish for any losses, but do not offer refunds at this time. We will reship any replacement fish at the buyer's expense. If you put the fish in your tank and it dies or is not acting properly, please contact us,  with pictures, within 24 hours. We will again, do everything in our power to resolvethe issue and ensure that you have a great experience with these fish.

"What if I'm not home when the fish arrive?"

-         We will always provide you with a tracking number. While the fish are packaged to survive about 72+ hours within the shipping containers, we do ask that you make arrangements to arrive home to inspect your fish as soon as possible after they are delivered to your home. Itis always suggested to provide an area for the delivery person to place the boxthat is out of direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.

"What do I do with my fish once I've unpacked them?"

-         Like you would with any new fish, let the entire bag float in your tank for 15-30 minutes. This allows the temperature withinthe bag to adjust to the same as your tank and will reduce temperature shock onthe fish. After this time, you can add all of the fish and water that is in thebag into your tank. The products used within the water for shipping will notharm any existing fish within your tank and actually makes the transition foryour new fish a bit easier. After this, expect your new fish to take a few daysto become fully adjusted, this includes hiding, floating at the top, sinking tothe bottom, and not eating. After a few days, your new fish should be acting aswimming like they normally would. At this point, enjoy your aquarium!

"I want to return my new fish because x,y,z?"

-         Unfortunately, we are unable to accept returns.We do recommend contacting us via email with yourorder number and as much information as possible. We will try to assist you inresolving whatever the issue may be.
