So, are these fish new species? No, absolutely not. Why then are they sold under different trade names - Rubescens, Rubin Red, German Red? Are there any real differences among them to justify it? The differences are subtle. The only differences might be intensity in their color, but this can vary within a single batch from the same parents and could easily be affected by diet as well. They're sold under different trade names because these are the names their breeders gave them. So, what do I call my red peacock? Whatever you like: Fred, Pete, Sam or anything else that suits your fancy. The point is that any differences among the red peacocks is either subtle or imagined and getting the proper name is a bit silly unless you're breeding and reselling them. In which case, you should only get your peacocks from a reputable source, someone who can garauntee their strain origin. But remember, all these peacocks are really a single species, bred from a single geographic location.



so if sold to you as a German Red then that is what you have!!!!

Sassy red and rubin are both red. Names are made up by wholesalers. Example albino clawed frogs are also call pink frog. Same critter.
