Are you going to try to keep (2) S.Brantii in the 40gal? If so I would have a divider in there ... Serras don't usually play very well together so you could end up with one or two damaged p's.

I think that is an excellent price for S. brandtii. Are you sure that's what they are? They could be just gold piranha (S. maculatus/spilopleura), because S. brandtii are pretty rare.

No! You cannot keep more than one together, it is absolutely necessary that they be kept in their own tanks. They would kill each other otherwise.

eh but since ur reds will out grow the dents and i dont think dent's are heavy on eating meat, but ur reds are, if something was to go down, i dont doubt that the reds will make quick work of the dent.
