Never had Tinfoils myself from what I've seen & read about them I imagine they would do pretty well with Sevs. Sevs are more than capable of standing up for themselves but are not usually bullies, they have a similar diet to so I think it would be a good match.

Very unlikely a single Sev would cause a problem. The only time I've ever seen aggression from a Sev was towards another Sev. Other than that they have never picked on anything I've housed them with.

2 could work. The usual rules of putting in two of the same American species apply to Sevs... A pair is best, not 2 males together etc.
