Are Peacock Cichlids aggressive?

Aulonocara, or the Peacock Cichlid, is a rock dwelling fish from Lake Malawi. There are many different varieties of aulonocara. 

All African Malawi Cichlids are territorial by nature, and can be aggressive, particularly towards non-species fish. They can be kept with other types of Malawi cichlids, such as Mbuna and Haplochromis, with Peacocks generally considered somewhat less aggressive. Inter-species aggression is not unheard of, so a species-only tank is recommended.
