These are pics of a juvinile pacu @ 1.5 inches.
I'm posting this for newbie piranha owners to distinguish
them from red bellies.

I was at one of the LFS in Madison last week and saw a 18" Black Pacu for sale. The asking price was $34.99. It was housed with a 14" RB Pacu and 2 10" oscars all in a single 125 gallon tank.

This is that same pacu 2 months later. I'd have to say he's over 6" now. I threw him in w/ my oscars and silver dollars when he was 3". This pic is a fair comparison in size to my 3" silver dollars.

I would say, take out your silver dollars and replace them with Ps. They'll get rid of it for you so you dont have to deal with it being bigger later.
