are there any other fish i could add to this stocking? Im going to filter with an eheim 2213 canister and an aquaclear 70 and may try some hardy plants such as java fern although i know severums tend to eat plants
First off I would up the filtration, Cichlids are very messy fish.
Second off what type of severum are we talking about? If you get a Rotkeil they stay considerably smaller then the Green Severum and it's color morphs. This is lighter on the bioload and gives you more options.
What are you looking for? A school of fish or another larger fish? Something odd like an eel or what?
If you go with a rotkeil, up your filtration and have live plants (I doubt your sev will eat java fern, but it might tear it up mine hasn't yet but he is still small)
If you elaborate on which species of severum you wish to have it would be easier to give you a definitive answer.
