    A severum would definitely be fine in a 55. This is weird because i have been looking at them as well. At my LFS they have a few VERY little guys that i would love to have. They are about the size of a silver dollar! (coin).

    It's really a good thing I haven't had the money for another tank before this as I have changed my mind 20 times as to what I wanted to stock it with. First it was peacocks, then Labs, then dwarfs. sheesh However, a Severum was nearly a first choice from way back when I decided to have a cichlid tank. Will stick with my first choice!

    I also thought of having a couple Blood Parrots with them. That one is still on the iffy side.

    I've never kept blood parrots, so I don't really know, but I've heard they can be pretty mean. Has anyone else heard anything on their behavior?
    This is my witty and clever signature. You like? :)

    Hey hobbs just to let you know I had festivums with my severum and he would chase them around all day, so watch out. although mine seems to be more aggressive then what people say, he leaves my ebjd though.

    I have heard blood parrots can be a real toss up. Some are little terrors while others just kind of chill out. I guess its their messed up genetics.

    It's that the case in all cichlids? LOL I love it when you read about a fish and it tells how docile and sweet it is and someone buys one and it's a holy terror.

    I think it is a Jeckle Hyde thing. If they are the only fish in the tank, they are sweet as pie. If they are the largest fish, they pick on the smaller guys and if they are the smallest, they are cowed.

    Its all about the other fishes personalities for me. If the fish are timid they pick on them and if they are even a little bit aggressive they leave them alone. except for my ebjd, they are really timid and the severum doesnt touch them.

    I have a firemouth that is bigger than the severum and the severum still chases the firemouth around. but when I had my less than 1 inch gb rams in the tank he would leave them alone. they owned the tank.

    That is true, when it comes to Cichlids you really cant go off of peoples past experiences with a certain fish. I think that is why i love Cichlids so much! lol
