Turquoise Red Spotted Severum
I just came back from the pet store with intent to buy a green Severum. I suddenly came across what was labeled a turquoise Red spotted Severum. I've heard of red and turquoise but never a combo of both. They didn't look too colorful in the tank, but knowing how they usually color up I took the plunge and got one. After he gets settled in tank ill get some pictures. Has anyone ever heard of one of these color variations?

Could be a red shoulder severum aka Heros sp. rotkeil
Heros cf. efasciatus (coming from French Guyane)

Here is a link I found of a Severum with a similar name as the one I bought. Mine doesn't quite resemble this one yet though because it's still a juvenile.

My LFS had some of these in when I bought my gold sev. I was really tempted. the owner said they are fairly new as far as bred. These were small and had not colored up so I decided to pass. Will be eager to see how you like yours.
