Anyone know what the growth rate is for Green Severum fish. My Oscars are growing pretty quick compared to My green severums . They are almost a year old this July and there growing a little slow is this normal ??? My two Oscars are going on 10 inches while my severums are different sizes one is 6 inches while the other is a little over 5 inches .

I have a green, maybe a year old and around 5ins. My gold is year and a half, over 6ins but not 7.


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

How Long would it take my Severums to reach there adult size ??? My Oscars are going to make them look like complete migits when there a year old. I just hope my Oscars don't make lunch of them once they get to there adult size :(

those greens look pretty nice ... and good size ..

sounds like you might have a male and female ~ since females are tend to be smaller.

Thanks guys u been a big help when it come to info on fish . Thanks for the compliments about my severums they sure are interesting. How can you tell a male from a female ??? The big one has nice pointy looking dorsal and caudal fun while the smaller one has a rounded appearance when it comes to the two fins.
