It is very possible that your severum has gone into fright/flight mode. The convict is a much more agressive fish. I would nix the convict, they are a neat fish, but very common and rather aggressive. Try feeding a live food such as brine shrimp. Frozen would do well. Blood worms, black worms, or tubifex worms would also do well. feeding frozen or freeze-dried would also suffice. Do not make this a regular, everyday habit. These fish need a well balanced diet. Flake or a balanced pellet food should be the staple diet. But, I would defintitely isolate, move, or get rid of the convict.
