The Nyassa peacock is only aggressive towards conspecifics and until a hierarchy
establishes itself among the males. It requires a tank large enough for unrestricted
swimming, with rockwork and a sandy substrate. After laying her eggs on a stone,
the female incubates them in her mouth, where even free-swimming fry will retreat
if threatened. There are several varieties of A. nyassae, some of which could well
be different species. Size: 12 cm.
