The Speckled Pavon can often be found alongside with the Peacock Cichlids. They can be differentiated from Peacock Cichlid with its elongated body with juveniles with speckles on its body and can grow larger than the Peacock Cichlids as well. They move along the bank feeding on small fishes which can observed as they break surface. The sound and vibrations from these surface breakings can sometimes trigger other basses to feed more aggressively.
