I want a severum sooooo bad. They are said to get along with most fish of equal size and with loaches, barbs, large gourami's and silver dollars. Angel fish was said to not get along with it.

On site said they grow to 5 inches but 10 other sites said more like 8 inches and sometimes even larger. I would think a 55 gallon at least.

Definitely a 55gal. Like silver dollars they are very fast swimmers and need a tank that is long enough to get out some of their energy. I also would like to have one some day.. i need another tank. haha
