The one with rounded belly has silverish scale while the other one is more gold like. I also notice that the rounder belly one is more aggressive and do most hunting of live feeders. The gold one just wait until the feeder caught and join the feast. Do they belong to same species? I now have 4 goldies and 2 silvers btw.

Yeah that's what I suspected, the fat one prolly eats more. Or just different sex. Thanks guys.
This is false. You can not tell the sex of a piranha through outward appearance.

I feel these are the same fish as they have the same spotting and coloring.

There has been alot of color variant of natts showing up recently. One turns very bonzish when it matures. The two different ones could be from a different breeders stock who is working with bronze Natt like that. Maybe the color is not regional though so im not really sure.

also a good chance that the p on top has been bitten... i got one just like that, he's all flat on teh bottom, but if i look hard i can see the scare tissue... also he is missing the ventral fins! look to see if yours has his missing as well, then that would be a pretty good indicator of a bite
