I don't think even dan is up to that one.

At the risk of repeating myself:

Next time stay within the preset focus range for the camera, probably a minimum of 4 feet, and it will be clear enough. Unless it has a macro lens, do not go any closer than 4 feet.

Hmmm,

Looks like an Alunocara nyasse . Unfortunately, juvenile Alunocaras, especially Peacocks, all look like little silver fish when they are young.

New pics of same fish should be in the same thread...

As russ pointed out, quite a few peacocks look like that, even a few other cichlids. Especially with fry or a juvy, as this appears to be. These might be good enough for dan to perform his magic, though.

4 feet away would be in better focus, though. The background rock is close to that in the third pic. Good tight cropping, just need to be a little further away.

If I say they shouldn't, someone will come along and say they are doing it and they are happy. I'll just say that it it would do better with other Peacocks, in a Tang tank, than with mbuna, in a Malawi tank.

i'd agree with cindy. Mbuna are pretty rambunctious while most Aulonocara are relatively placid. the latter may get pretty 'roughed up' in a Mbuna tank and thus, they don't make good tankmates in my opinion.
