i've read many articles and peoples post on how to sex a piranha, but i still have no clue. So i was wondering if u guys were able to do it for me if i provide the pictures? and what angles of the fish should be taken?

and here's a question off the subject.. if two piranhas fight each other... does it mean they are of the same sex? or does sex have nothing to do w/ fighting?

Most people will tell you that it's impossible to sex piranha's until they have actually spawned.
Piranha's are sexually dimorphic, which means there are no appearant visual differences between males and females.

Some will probably disagree (like the one who created the page mentioned in the previous post - no pun intended, Nate), but the general concensus is that sexing is (near) impossible...

Plain and simple...
2 pairs fighting does not conclude they are a breeding pair. Too much to abide by just for 2 to pair up. Considering they are paired off at an adult stage.. water factor, space, settings..etc can hinder them from completing the stages.

nate hit it pretty good on his page. im going to watch my P's extra carefully now. i have presently 4 RBP's 2 with flat bellies, 2 with round.
also i noticed that the round bellies rarly leave eachother and the flat bellies usually swim all over the place.

and if you happen to get a breeding pair, that does not mean they will not fight with each other as well. i have seen a breeding pair fight quite often (it's probably the female that starts it!!) bitch bitch bitch :laugh:
