I am sorry i should know this by now but i keep forgetting. Could you add the size of the different tanks?
However I can say this now.
Tank 1: need to know size. You might be over stocking it. Severums are not schooling but rather territorial fish.
Tank 2: Sounds good
tank 3: sounds good.
tank 4: The black ghost would eventually eat the Betta when it grows larger but you would need to move it to another tank as it grows so that might not be a problem.

Umm ill have to get the measuremants i had them written down but i forget now but i know tank 1 is 55 gallons

Ok. That was the one I needed the measuremnt for most.
I would not keep more than max 2 pairs of severum in it. Prefrable just one to give them room to form a territory and breed.

Some/many are gentle but they still grows very large.

Ok now my 20 gal has
1 Black ghost
1 Silver Dollar
2 blue gouramis
1 white gourami
5 goldfish (shubunkin, redcap, Black moor, 2 fantails)
2 white clouds
2 zebra danios
The fish get along fine but i was curious would it be safe to get 2 more 3 inch black ghosts which will go into my oscar tank when bigger and possibly some sort of bottom feeder?
