The OB peacock is a man made hybrid breed. They're bred for their awesome crazy colors. So some fish breeders and hobby nuts really frown upon them. They feel that they're a Frankenstein abomination, and you shouldn't hybrid breed fish. They want to keep the breed "pure". But I don't really have any moral reservations about it. They're cool looking....

Here's some more to show you the variety...

Those are definitely cool. I am all for purity of species but by mixing them you can begin to create whole separate strings with colors not found naturally. Thats part of the fun of fish keeping is the ability to see new colors and be surprised at what is "created." i know in our water garden we have fish patterns you will never see available in the store. The natural ones will still always be there as well.

That sounds like a neat store. I was really sad to see Waldo Pets go when it did. I drove out there a few years back right after it closed but I had no idea it was gone until I got there.
