Red-Spotted Turquoise Severum Cichlid
Heros serverus

Water Conditions: 73-77° F, KH 4-5, pH 6.0-6.5
Max. Size: 8"
Diet: Carnivore
Origin: Amazon, Northern South America
Family: Cichlidae

Another color variation of the Heros genus, the Red-Spotted Turquoise Severum is a trusting fish similar to the Gold Severum, and will often accept food directly from your hand. Water should be mildly acidic, soft with a pH of 6.0-6.5 and a hardness of dH 5. The temperature should range from 77-82°F.

Requires a 20 gallon or larger tank.  The larger the tank the larger the fish will grow. They prefer a lightly-planted tank with a soft bottom. Adding a few large rocks will also keep this fish at home.

The Severum can be aggressive only when spawning, and for this reason should only be housed with other semi-aggressive fish. Sexing males/females is very difficult. Positive identification can only be made after close examination of the genital papillae. These Severums will not pair as readily as other South American Cichlids and should be kept in groups of at least 3 or more.  
These are great parents and will carefully tend to its frye!

I must commend you on the Red-Spotted Turquoise Severum. I ordered some a while back. They have grown to be BEAUTIFUL!! Far outshining the Red, Yellow, Green, or Orange-Shouldered I also purchased from azgardens.com Anyway,...I love these fish. I have heard them called the "poor-man's discus".. LOL! I agree!! Mine have gone through various color stages and now, as adults, they really do remind me of discus and look even better than the pic you show. Thanks. Give them time to grow and feed a varied diet and you will be rewarded!
