thanks everyone for the comments!

sorry cicolid i bought it from a pet shop as a firefish peacock and thats all i know. It was an impulse buy but hes a really cool fish so i dont mind too much. at first i thought he was white craned but after talking to the shop owner i was convinced it wasnt... its been a month and still holding its colour and healthy so i guess he was telling the truth.

Could you please tell me the genus & species of the "Firefish Peacock" ?

You won't find anything due to the fish being a Hybrid and in no way shape or form is it a true Aulonocara Sp.

I have never heard of them being called firefish though they have been circulating :angry: throughout the hobby under the trade name of "Dragon bloods"

The most common problem with that particular hybrid is its tendency to remain stunted in its growth.

Nice looking Lions cove though :thumb

Dont worry i have no intentions of breeding them.

The Lions cove is a cool looking fish.

Firefish/dragon bloods are in every way shape and form Auolnocara. They are line bred from A. stuartgranti red shoulder. And goldens have been line bred in Australia without hybridisation. I can provide some links for research purposes, but would need mods permission.

What you are saying is the same as saying " 'red melons' and 'blue diamonds' are in no way shape or form discus. ”
