The answer is NO that total of 8 pygo...is to much for 125g..what you have is good already 4 in 125g..you maybe can push to eigther one or 2 more max....it may look enough but is not..but is your money and fish so you have to see what is good for your piranha.

Although you can add it, but the over crowed and no space to swim...exspecially the caribe is the most territorial out of all pygo it will end up fighting or get kill.

i know that but you have the same amount of fish as me in a 80 gallon so six in a 125 gallon still abides by the 20 gallon per fish rule right?

That 20 gallon rule isn't set in stone and that's mostly for red bellies. Caribes, terns. and pirayas all need more room.

Maybe sell of two reds and then add a caribe and piraya. Then you'd still have 4 fish in a 125.

give it a shot if in the future you need to sell one cause of aggression or just want to give your fish so more room to swim you can there is always someone looking for a larger fish to add to there shoal

When using the 20 gal. per pygo rule, just don't forget to factor in the tank's footprint. For example 1 rbp per 20 gal. of water does not really apply when you are using a tall tank as opposed to a long tank, due to the horizontal movement of these fish.

or maybe sell 2, pick up 2 caribe, a tern and a super....so you'd have 2 redbelly's, 2 caribe, a tern and a super red, for 6 fish in your tank.....that would be quite fine
