Can you tell if my Gold severum is a male or female from the picture? I've heard that males anal and dorsal fins are more pointed but i've never seen any adults that don't have pointed fins.
2) The LFS sold the other fish to my wife as a Brown Severum. Is there such a thing or is it a Uaru (triangle cichlid).
3) I tried to incorporate two more juvenille Gold severums (kinda pale white at that stage). They were fine for about a week and then !bam! ich everywhere...i shoulda known better. Anyway, after a successful two week course of treatment i thought i was homefree. Two days later one of the young severums was dead. One week later i noticed the other one not eating and doing a lot of open mouth gulping. I removed it to a hospital tank and it died within 5 minutes. I checked all water parameters and everything was within normal tolerances. Did I do something wrong (besides not quarantining) or is it likely the new fish were weak to begin with?
