Unexchange brought something to my attention....he said that he's noticed that piranha owners also own oscars.......im wondering if Oscar fish are distant cousins of the piranha family

Piranha = Characin

ooooooOOOOooooo, so they aren't related to piranha's or ARE they?.....im just curious, cuz i went to a PetCo today, and looked at the info-tag they had on tiger oscars.....and it said it was from south america/amazon region....and im still wondering thats all.......my next idea would be to have some saltwater fish, like a whole bunch of clown fish in a 50gal tank

If Cichlids were to live with large schools of Piranhas.. all CIchlids would become extinct...

Lilith is great with saltwater projects.

Piraha and Cichlids are both great hellbent fish
But you just have not witnessed pure unsurpassed carnical evil till yav kept salt water preds


True Oscars and Piraha both come from Brazil....but they rarely live in the same area of streams and tributaries. All fish in general are related...but Oscars and Piranha arnt of the same Genus or Species so they arnt closely enough related to really be called a cousin fish to one another. Infact Piranha are more closely related to tetras than they are an Oscar

Dear god, and you're going to war: after 15 minutes, you don't even remeber where you are, who you're fighting or why


Just try to remember: guys with oversized moustaches are bad, umkay
