Green Severum 3inch

Rs. 300.00
Unit price  per 

A fish with real character which needs a large aquarium to remain in good health. Males have more pronounced cheek markings.

The Green Severum is a peaceful species, suitable for communities of non-aggressive medium-large sized fish. In the wild, the gentle Green Severum can be found in slow-moving waters packed with heavy with vegetation. Therefore the aquarium should include plenty of robust plant species along with numerous rocky caves and bogwood pieces. Green Severums can be kept in groups or pairs, but should a pair choose to spawn in a community setting, they will become much more aggressive towards the other fish. Ideally the tank will be at least 4ft long with lots of visual barriers for the other fish to escape the Green Severums attentions.
