Looking for a suitable tank mate for him. He bumps other fish but pretty gently. I heard severium make good tank mates.20200522_181759.jpg

Welcome to MFK.
Nice looking flowerhorn you got there.
I wouldn’t add severum in with a flowerhorn.
Severum are not nearly boisterous enough to handle even a mildly aggressive flowerhorn.
My advice would be to keep it alone or add some tough fast swimming dithers.
Giant danios or maybe Tiger barbs could possibly work.
I think adding another cichlid would eventually end in either the flowerhorn or the new cichlid being damaged or killed.

Tiger barbs do best in LARGE schools. They are a fish that NEEDS 10+.
They can and will destroy fish with even slightly long fins.
I've has first hand experience with this. :(
