The Bosemani rainbow is a good choice.  The peacock cichlid will want higher ph and hard water which bosemani rainbows are well suited to.  Not are rainbows like high ph dwarf neon rainbow prefer slightly acidic water.

Check out the temperature and ph requirements for each of your fish.  If the peacock is the centerpiece look for fish that do well in higher ph water.
