Hello and welcome to TFK :-D If you have not come across the section there is a tropical fish profile section which has profiles and the more common kept fish. The link can be found at the top of the page second tab from the left. Also you can access the profile information by clicking on the highlighted name like Severum. As for compatibility the severum and the gourami would probably not be a good mix, gouramis are a more sedate fish and it is recommended not to keep sedate fish with severums. You can find out more by reading the profiles, and again welcome.

Well I did already read them do you have any other reccomendations of a possible cichlid I could add to this mix if severum wont work.

You could do a festivum if you can find one or some angelfish. Bolivina rams could work as well as keyhole cichlids, or appitostogrammas(sp?), or blue acaras. There are a lot of options out there.

Really I have heard that blue acaras are really aggressive

Josh7 08-08-2011 04:00 PM

So do you think a 1 blue acara if introduced small could do well with these fish possibly

rrcoolj 08-08-2011 08:45 PM

yea acaras are not THAT aggressive usually but every fish is different. If introduced small in a community setting I think it will do fine.

okay then thanks for the advice my lfs has about 2 inch juveniles think I will get just one and see how it does.
