    Yes, with other African peacocks and haplochromine species. Severums require different water chemistry and habitat.

    Is this fish aggressive ? Peaceful ?

    Generally speaking, peaceful.

    Would you keep it itslef or in pairs??

    Neither. One or two males and several females. They are harem breeders. Only keep one of several species if you are doing an all male tank.

    All info would be great !
    Answers are in red. Just some general info.
    11 tanks, 5.5g up to 125g(2). Mbuna, Haps, Peacocks, Tangs, wild caught to tank raised!

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I would revise that article to say that Malawi cichlids are generally divided into 3 groups, not 2. They would be Mbuna, Peacocks, and Haplochromine species. The latter vary much greater in size and temperament than Peacocks, including some truly large and predatory types.

    It is the beginning of his research, Not the end of it.

    No.

    It's like asking if you can keep a penguin and a flamingo together, They are both birds but have totally different environmental needs.

    You cannot provide conditions for the needs of both in the same tank IMO, No doubt some do but I think the compromise serves neither.

    I would get something more suitable if I were you.

    I agree that peacocks do not mix well with severums. Choose one or the other for your tank, or do what I did and get another tank so you can keep both. Peacocks are too aggressive for the sevs, even overlooking the incompatible water chemistry.
