I, by no means, am any expert LOL! I still feel like a noob even though I've had this tank for about 10 years. There is so much to learn and I'm glad I discovered this forum. It's great to have so many different views and ideas.
It's just that the one sev I have is very shy and seems lonely (even with the plec). He/she spends a lot of time hiding behind a rock. I had heard about "dither" fish to make timid fish feel more comfortable to come out and swim. Is this correct?
Will a firemouth get along with him/her (not sure of sex) or should I just get another severum? I thought maybe a slightly smaller fish would be a easier load on the 55 gal tank.
