i found these in my lfs under the name of heros severu but they don't seem to look like regular severums, anyone have any idea what these guys are? so far they seem to look like golden severums with green bars.

trying my best to get a decent pic of these buggers, but they seem to love hiding in my plants... as they are only 1" i guess i'll have to wait for a bit before being able to tell what they are. i do know they have grown since when i brought them home 3 days ago.

i only got 2, as i'm going to be adding chocolates and see what happens, if they get along they will all stay with me, if not i will be rehoming some through my local aquarium club.
shouldn't be hard as they don't get alot of severums or chocolates.
