    Hello. I just got a Red Shoulder Severum for my 55. He is by himself & It has 2 Penguin 350 filters on it & I do 50% water changes every week. Will he be OK in the tank?

    how big is the severum?
    what about putting it in with the Oscar or is it too small?

    Hi Colin. The Severum is about 5 inches. I think its best my Oscar stays alone. You don't think I should have the Severum in a 55? I was thinking about a Blue Acara.

    the severum should be fine in a 55 gallon tank but I was thinking your Oscar might enjoy some company. Obviously you would have to watch them if you do add any fish to the Oscar tank but they are relatively peaceful even tho they are a predator.
