Care Guide:

  1. Tank Setup:

    • Provide a spacious tank with a minimum of 75 gallons for adult Goldspot Severums.
    • Use a fine substrate and incorporate plenty of rocks, driftwood, and caves for hiding places.
    • Ensure ample swimming space and maintain a well-aerated environment.
  2. Water Conditions:

    • Maintain a temperature between 75-82°F (24-28°C).
    • Keep the pH level around 6.5-7.5.
    • Regular water changes are crucial to maintain water quality.
  3. Diet:

    • Offer a varied diet including high-quality cichlid pellets, flakes, and live or frozen foods like bloodworms, brine shrimp, and small crustaceans.
    • Supplement their diet with vegetable matter such as blanched spinach or zucchini.
  4. Behavior:

    • Goldspot Severums are generally peaceful but can become territorial, especially during breeding.
    • Provide ample hiding spots and territories to reduce aggression.
    • They are best kept in pairs or groups, but monitor for signs of aggression and be prepared to separate individuals if necessary.
  5. Breeding:

    • Provide a flat surface or smooth rock for spawning.
    • The female will lay eggs on the substrate or on a flat surface.
    • After spawning, the parents may become aggressive towards other tank mates, so consider providing a separate breeding tank.
  6. Health:

    • Monitor for signs of illness such as loss of appetite, abnormal behavior, or visible signs of disease.
    • Quarantine new fish before introducing them to the main tank to prevent the spread of diseases.
  7. Compatibility:

    • Goldspot Severums can be kept with other peaceful cichlids of similar size, as well as non-aggressive community fish.
    • Avoid keeping them with aggressive or overly territorial species.

With proper care and attention to their needs, Goldspot Severums will thrive and become a stunning centerpiece in your aquarium, captivating all who behold their beauty.
