New Member Needs Advice
Great forum here, thanks for letting me be a part of it!
Heres my question:
I have a 4" Green Severum in a 55g tank along with a 2" Pleco. The tank has driftwood cover inside. with 2 Penguin 400's.
She is EXTREMELY shy. I would like to add some dither fish, but scanning the web I get mixed ideas of what to add.
I know I don't want fin nippers and a small group of 6-10 would be nice. However, I don't want them to become a menu item, as my Severum gets larger.
Any suggetions would be great!!!
Welcome to Fishforum.com.:wave:
Your severum will be fine with some giant danios, scissortail rasboras, Buenos Aires tetras, Congo tetras, glass bloodfins and penguin tetras. These are a few I can remember.
What pleco do you have?
Thank you for the response.
I'm not sure, at the local Aquarium shop it was just listed as a Pleco.
But it's black about 2-3" long with orange stripe, blocked type pattern. Ideas?
just would like to say welcome aboard. :)
well it not a sailfin or a common any pics?
I'll get a picture as soon as the camera batteries recharge. :D
To be a little more descriptive, he's actually like a light brown or light orange with black spots.
Without a picture of the pleco, it's hard to say - but welcome to the forum!!
Oh - and as a severum keeper myself, I'd love to see some pics of yours if you can :)
Here's the best pics I could get using my poor aquarium photo skills. :D
"Angel" the Severum:
And "Hoover" the mystery Pleco:
Hope that helps ID the little guy.
APOLOGIES FOR THE HUGE PICS!! :oops:
that pic and ur description seem to contridict one another. can u get a better one? oh and i forgot welcome to the forum.
Sorry, thats best I could get with him..throw out my description. :D
Even, if I never figure what type he is, he's still on the job.
