Sounds like he may be an overly aggressive one. He may settle down after a while. You could try removing him for a week or two then move the rocks around before re-introducing him back to the tank. Doesn't always work but worth a try.

I have had to swap out a few fish before I got the balance right in my tank. Some individuals are just aggressive.

OB peacocks are a hybrid of Peacock and Mbuna. I'm not sure about Dragon Blood but it's a man-made fish of some sorts. Not all dragon bloods are as aggressive as yours.

Yeah from time to time I come across a read bad-ass fish. Swapping it out (sell, return or give away) and replace with another fish is one of the options. At the moment I have a fantastic lookin red empress in a time out in my sump tank.

10" - 12" is about right ... but not overnight

a bit bigger than your other peacocks when they hit adult size but quite peaceful from what I've read.

This is the best one i've come across on youtube. Such a fantastic specimen!
