they might look kind of the same, but they are differant species (closely related though)
Red belly Pacus and black pacus get way bigger than piranhas, and do not have such large, powerfull lower jaws, but this does not mean they don't eat feeders.
often described as vegetarian, it is not, it just eats more vegetation than piranhas

I understand.

Frank - did you get those scientific names I sent you?
can you explain to me which ones are correct for the differant types of pacu?

Xenon - what do you say about adding pacus, silver dollers, wimple piranhas and other "nearly a piranha" type fish to the factsheets with explinations of the differances between them and true piranhas?
Yeah that would be very helpful to the board and then it would save a lot of questions from the newbies. It would be nice to know the difference myself I know some of the differences but I would like to learn more.
