Would these plants work 4 a sev tank?? I am asking for it 4 Christmas, but I would like 2 know if they won't work before anyone gets it. If there r only a few that won't work, I can put them in one of my other tanks.

The severum's will probably eat ALL of those..!! I ended up getting rid of my sevs because of the amount of plants they were eating! The tank then starts looking crap! You have to pick... sevs or plants... generally you can't have both.

IME with severums, I would not bother with plants. Whatever they didnt eat, would be shreaded for fun. Anubias, Cyrpts, Java Moss all would be pulled up or chopped up. They would however breed on big anubias leaves.

As long as there is vegetation in there diet they won't bother what ever you choose to plant. Urau's on the other hand will! Regardless of what type(feisty little vegans) This link should help.

lol i have two green sevs and some tankmates in a 90 gallon-i use just driftwood and a few fake silk plants from the local craft/hobby store. its much cheaper to buy plants that way then pay double for the same thing at your lfs! lol
