I believe it's green or turquoise. I'm sure the severum is the aggressor. It chases the poor green terror around the tank. It approaches it then pushes it out from where ever it is.

It looks to be a Green to me as well. Just in it's stress markings in the picture. Cichlids are Cichlids, they all have personalities. Also when mixing larger cichlids even Severums it is best to get them young and have them grow up with one another (before they hit the 2.5-3inch marks on something like a severum).

The Sev might have claimed the entire tank to itself. If you decide to replace it I would replace it with some fast moving dither fish for the top layer of the tank. It will help the GT not be as shy as well as provide a more balanced look to the tank.

All the fish are pretty small. Not even two inches. I was thinking of going with a convict.

But I'm open to suggestions. What kind of fish for the top layer?

Convicts have notoriously bad tempers. An adult convict and adult Green Terror may not mix very well.

What are the dimensions of your tank?

It's a weird tank. 3 feet long, 2 feet tall and 14 inches wide. what about a fire mouth?

I really don't want to add dither fish because I don't want to buy a school.
And thanks for all your advice so far. I really enjoy the people on this forum.

Well I brought home a fire mouth and the green terror is chasing it all around the tank. Hopefully it survives the night.

not sure what to do now. I guess the tank is his.
I'm thinking of starting from scratch and taking the green terror back.
