    Default Heros liberifer (Red Mouthbrooder Severum)

    A relatively newly described severum from the Rio Orinoco basin (Staeck & Schindler, 2015) https://www.fishbase.de/summary/68151

    I was given these a group of 6 unfortunately they had some severe fin rot and just apparent bacterial/fungal issue so treated them with a dose of Nitrofurazone then just clean water after that. Lost one fish but the rest recovered very nicely growing the fins back fully in a month or so. Have had these in this 55g for 3 months or so now. I just hooked up a LED light over head and they took a little to adjust (hour maybe) then went back to normal behavior, so then I was able to see the pair that took over the left side of the tank and flower pot. Very happy to see how uhhh "happy" and healthy they all look I see some marks on the bodies but nothing infected etc just old injuries. I'm pretty sure they are wild caught imported by Imperial not to long ago with a bunch of other fish.

    First video is a group shot sorry for the condensation its very humid in the breeding room lol




    Then this video is the next day and you can obviously see they are about to spawn!!

    Congrats Joe on getting them healthy, so nice to see, they look great! I really like severums, do they dig and rearrange like I've read? I also read they spawn on flat rocks like rams, guess they like caves as well :) Good luck breeding these guys!

    I've seen them sift the sand but there is not very much sand so I can't say on the digging habits.
