    Do you mean a gold severum? I am not familiar with "shivrams"

    If you are talking about the severums, I think they are compatible depending on the tank size.....but I don't know for sure. Both species get pretty large, so it would have to be a big tank....

    Severums are peaceful and generally accepted as good tankmates with blood parrots. I plan on putting a rotkiel severum with parrots in my 75. Rotkiels are supposed to not get as large as a regular severum though so I would think you'll need to get at least a 90 gallon to hold a gold severum AND blood parrots in the same tank.

    However, the temperament of cichlids is variable so while in general they make good tank mates, you can always end up with a total jerk that won't get along.
