Thread: Golden Severum

So, I'm wanting to redo my 65g 4ft tank as a Severum tank. I have many questions.
The tank is currently home to some Kribensis and I really hope to keep them there. There are also 12 Sterba's Cories which I can (reluctantly) move if necessary.
Future planned tank-mates included BN Plecs, and a pair or angels OR group of large schoolers (maybe Black Skirts). I would also be open to ditching any of all of those ideas if anyone has a better idea. Another pair of some cichlid, perhaps? I'm all ears. I like Blood Parrots, Sajica Cichlids, Firemouths, Keyholes, Rainbow cichlids, Eartheaters -- etc, etc. Would love to hear if any of these are compatible with both kribs and severums.
Any suggestions? Tank mates, how I should set the tank up, etc? Or how many Severums I should keep? I was planning on only one but after reading a few websites some people recommend keeping them in groups.
Please and thank you!

I do not want to overstock this tank at all, and would actually prefer understocking, so I really like your idea.
- 1 Gold Severum
- 2 Blood Parrots
- 2 Kribensis
- 12 Sterba's Cories
I'm assuming the BPs have to be a mated pair? Also where do they spend the majority of their time in the tank?
I'll have a look tomorrow at the LFS -- better make sure they have some before I go getting all excited!120g New World Cichlids ♦ 65g South-East Asian Planted Community ♦ 30g in-the-works ♦ 15g Tanganyikan Shell-Dwellers
