i made a severe mistake when i bought my first oscar, i was unaware of how quick they grew and in uder a year im left with a 10 inch oscar, relucktently i had to move him into my goldfish tank then move my community tropicals to his old tank along with the golds and there inst much room for the community and they are fighting much so i am going to move them all back until i get a 5 or 6 foot long tank for my garage which Finn and devil my two oscars will be moved into but i was just curious can i keep a severum that cant swallow blackskirt tetras, with blackskirt tetras, ive kept the same severum with all my other fish in the past so im sure he can live the rest

That shouldn't be a problem but you never know 100%

Well, most of the time he hides in his pipe only coming out to get food

keyhole or dwarf cichlids perhaps. how about german rams.

yeah ive wanted them for a while ill buy some how many would u reccomend so far in the 50GAL there is 1 4 inch Black Ghost, 1 severum, 4 blackskirts, 1 shubunkin, 2 blue acaras, 1 silver dollar, 1 bristlenose, 2 blue gouramis and 1 white gourami all the fish are relativly small and arent close to being fully grown, so yeah any thing else

I forgot about tha acaras. They might be too aggressive for the rams. I have kept them together without problems but I know their can be problems sometimes.

I think I would get 2 pairs if I were to try it.

ok well one of my acaras is really placid and the other is quite agressive but it is only agressive when another fish goes near the black ghost don't ask me why but they share the ornament ship together
