Severum Dither fish
I have 2 rotkeil severums (thanks rr
) and a gold severum, along with a jewel chichlid in a 110g tank. They settled in after a few weeks, and everyone was just hunky. After a couple months, and for no reason as far as I can tell, the jewel decided to up and change his "territory". It sent the tank into a tussle that lasted alot longer than the initial one, and one severum (male, I think) bullying everyone away from the whooole middle of the tank. I rescaped, and moved his driftwood cover to one end of the tank, and that seems to have quieted things down for now.
If the jewel stirs them up again, would it be worth while to either a) get rid of the jewel or b) get a school of small dither fish? I used to keep tiger barbs with my last 3 severum, and they did just fine, I was thinking giant danios too, as they arent as active as the regular danios.
