American Severum Question

Recommended Posts

Ok I am hoping someone out there has some idea about americans and what I am asking lol. I have no idea about them and they are not my fish. My friend has these 2 americans that look just like these pics (these are not the actual fish)

They are Severums I am guessing. They have have just had babys. I was wondering if they would be concidered xbreed or not and if it is ok to take them away form the parents at 2 days old as she has offered them to me cause she is not interested in the babys. If I dont take them they will be loach food 8O . Anyone with 1/2 a clue would help please. Thank you

those two pictured are infact the same species , just different colour morphs so they wouldnt be considered a hybrid

is this thier first time they have bred? if it is im suprised they havent eaten the eggs/fry yet ( sevs are notorious for this ) so if i was your friend i would get them out ASAP

hi , i breed my gold male & green female severums all the time with good coloured babies - i do not consider them a cross as they are the same species of fish breeding - take all the babies you can get hold of - you will be glad u did when people line up 2 buy the juvies , my babies turn out solid gold or solid green so dont worry about them breeding.the juvies will look great believe me & all the people who bought babies from my pair .see ya
