Help Name That Fish

fsaforo(7)February 2, 2006

Hey folks,

Years ago, I had what looked like a "Red Belly Piranha," only this fish got twice the size in the half the time and was just a gentle giant.

Thanks as always,

Flo

Try putting your finger into the tank and see if it will destroy your finger, so you will know if its a deadly Piranha or a peaceful Pacu. Dropping a beta into the tank does not answer your question, since large fishes consider betas a glorious snack.
