Picked up two severums couple weeks ago. Largest and first is roughly 2 1/2" and was told buy lfs it was an orange shoulder but i think its a green. Any opinions or thoughts as to type or sex.

Second is around 1 1/2" and got at a different lfs and lady had no idea.i'm thinking maybe turquoise. Both have really got more color since i bought them. The smaller one most times always has a blue look over the whole body even the fins.never shows a yellow or other color anywhere

Thanks. They look much nicer than the pics allow. I'm going to get a gold and positive red shoulder yet for my tank and that should do it.

Yeh i really love severums. They usually don't bother other tankmates unless prevoked and can be kept with much smaller tankmates. I had a gold severum awhile back that grew to 8" i kept with a 10" chocolate and they were best buds. Lol. They would both let me gently rub they're side and would lay over like it relaxed them enough to put them to sleep. LOL

I just looked at the sev in the link u posted and mine looks good bit different. My 2 and a half incher has a good bit more yellow on fins and top edge of fin on his back is lined with blue. Mine has alot more blue on his head. The smaller one and a half incher is different. He has a whole lot more blue on head and his body looks blue with no hint of green or yellow. His fins and tail look blue and no sign of yellow on them either. I know from my experience tho with both fresh and saltwater that fish are capable of changing looks completely as they mature. Lol

Very nice. How big is she? Look for squiggly lines or markings between eyes. Usually males have them and females don't. Hard to tell from pic.
