Seeing folks interested in peacock bass has my wondering why. Is it because they are a big fish? Do they have personality like oscars?

Simply put...their purdy and you can play devils advocate with them. Personality is like any other bass and not even close to an oscar IMHO.

Ah ok.

I'm not into big fish that are simply pretty. If they are going to be big, they should be personable.
