We dont have a stock list calculator as they are too variable, the inch per gallon does not apply to all fish and was only ever meant to be a rough guide but too many people used that sort of thing as gospel and didn't take the adult size of fish into it which is what that was built around etc. With tanks like biorbs the surface area is so limited that the rule would never apply to those either.

Not wishing to sound facetious but I am glad that you have changed your mind about Discus, they should never be kept purely because they look nice, a lot of research and time is involved caring for them, Severums are great fish in their own right and there are some beautifully coloured specimens to be found.

You will probably find that the Severums are a lot easier on the penny count as well :-):

Yep my LFS sells the yellow ones at £3 each of £5 for 2 but as blowfish said I should get 1 male and 3 females.

But is there an easy way to sex them as the last thing I want is to end up with 3 males and one female etc
