Do you think i could put a saber toothed tetra in an unestablished tank with around 3-7. 4-5'' red bellies in a 100-125 gallon tank ?

Same story as with any other piranha tank mate: it may or may not work for a while, but even if it does it could end any moment. Basically when adding tank mates in a piranha tank you're dropping in food.

From what I have read in the wild Sabertooth Tetras hund piranhas. Actually piranhas are it's main source of food. BUt I don't know maybe with a little guy it could be different but I bet if they were all to their full size your piranhas would be gone.

Ty,

Did you mean this fish: Payara (Hydrolycus scomberoides). It is also called Saber Toothed Barracuda or Peacock Bass. It grows over 3 foot and 30 pounds.

Payara

Oops,

Yes the Peacock Bass (Cichla temensis) is a Cichlid. It is also (like Payara) a favourite angling fish from South America.

according to most things you will read these fish do tend to die in home tanks at around 8-10inches long. in the wild they do get very big as the guys have already said. i would think size for size a P would kill it though.
