1. Its not a PAYARA, its a Pirandirá . This payara name has been floating around the sport fishing pages and its the wrong native common name.

2. Piranhas, namely S. rhombeus is indeed used for bait to catch these fish in the rapids.

3. Piranhas would attack the belly of the Pirandirá in your home aquarium, since they are natural enemies. These fish are geared for eating surface fish (look at their eyes and upturned snout). And as stated, these fish require very clean waters and live in rapids. Most do indeed die in the home aquarium unless you are willing to spend quite a few dollars to keep them alive in a giant aquarium. At best, you might get it to reach a foot long IF YOU ARE VERY VERY LUCKY which is not even close to 1/2 grown. Most die in the home aquarium at 6 or so inches.
