Severum not active or eating

Postby bugie008 » Sun Jun 16, 2019 2:32 am

Dear all,

I bought 4 severums to a new tank. The tanks was cycled and pH, hardiness, nitrates and temp are all good. Out of the 4 severums I have 2 who are behaving normally, exploring the tank etc. The other 2 unfortunately rarely come out are always hiding and sitting at the bottom, they look healthy. I haven't seen them eating at all it has been 3 days and I am worried at this point. The size of the severums is around 9cm (3'). I have a 500l tank with plenty of room for them. Am I doing something wrong? How can I help them?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
