    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.

    1 Silver Dollar
    5 Blackskirts
    2 blue gouramis
    1 white gourami
    5 goldfish (shubunkin, redcap, Black moor, 2 fantails)
    2 white clouds
