I am just not 100% sure~~
Apparently, the two fish below are not the same fish~~
it seems one is Rohm and the other is Sanchezi, right?
besides, the fish I bought is the bottom one~~

after blowing up all the new pics pic on photoshop they do look pretty even, and rhom like but at 3" it could be either, only time will tell that for sure.

I thought that pic looked familiar. That is indeed my Sanchezi which I am glad to say is still alive and healthy 5 years + later. :cheers: Thanks for the expert comment, but i am far from expert :)

yea, they actually use your picture as one of the sample of S.Rhom
and here is the link:http://www.piranha-info.com/default.php?lang=en&id=s_rhombeus

If your fish is the one in the bottom picture, then I'm going to have to go with S. sanchezi. It's is hard to distinguish serras at that size...especially between rhom and sanchezi. I count 15 dorsal fin rays which inidicates sanchezi and not rhom.

The one in the top picture appears to be S. sanchezi too.

Actually, the old sanchezi pic in this thread is Dr. Giggles' fish. I'd like to see a current pic too!

Here is a crappy pic of my 5+ year old sanchezi (his coloration is actually a lot more red than orange)...trying to figure out it's true identity is what led me to this site and to more serras!

I wish I had a picture of it when it was small, but it looked very much like white_blue_gray's. I do have a preserved specimen of one bought at the same time from the same LFS that a student donated.
