Although its basic shape very closely resembles that of the largemouth bass, the Miami Peacock bass is not actually a member of the bass family. It belongs to a family of fish known as “cichlids“, one of that boasts more than 1,000 species worldwide and is well known to tropical fish enthusiasts. Like the largemouth bass, the peacock prefers to ambush unsuspecting prey from a stealthy vantage point and demonstrates a gluttonous appetite. The similarity ends there, however, the peacock bass is much more eye appealing than its North American counterpart, colorfully adorned in varying shades of green, blue, orange and gold. Don’t let this appearance fool you, however. The Miami Peacock bass is much more aggressive than a largemouth, often pursuing lures or fleeing prey the same size. The Miami peacock bass routinely breaks line and destroys tackle to show its aggression.
Although four distinct species of peacock bass, known as pavon in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, and Brazil, are from South America, at least two or more of the species have made its way to North America (South Florida).
A common characteristic shared by all species of peacock bass is the black circular “eye spot” dramatically rimmed in gold on the base of the caudal fin. Since this spot closely resembles the one found on the tail plume of the land-dwelling peacock fowl, and the profile of the fish resembles the North American black bass, the name peacock bass became the perfect moniker. The butterfly pavon is one of the most colorful and more plentiful. Butterfly peacocks typically average two to four pounds. But as seen in the picture above they are getting much larger.
