What size tank do you have?
Even though the Green Severum is one of the least agressive it still needs to be housed with other semi agressive fish.
Cychlids requires a 30 gallon or larger tank that is at least 40 inches long and 20 inches tall, any smaller than this and they usually get agressive to other fish the same size or smaller, remember this is a Cychlid and is a carnivore, don't worry about the colouration this vastly changes from fish to fish, I have one that is almost gold in colour. Your fish will grow to 8 or 9", if he is agressive now he will only get worse.
If he has a favourite cave/hiding place, move this cave every couple of weeks or at each water change, this seems to make his territorial instincts a bit better, hence make him less agressive.
Hope this helps, any problems just ask
