Teeth exposure is an individual fish thing. I do not know of a species that has exposed teeth as a common trait. As for aggression, I think you need to look at the serra species. Most will not live with anything. If you are looking for an aggressive fish that will not break your bank, I would look into a spilo. My spilo is very very aggressive.

I hear the elongatus piranha is a mean bastard. It is the most slender of piranhas.
I hear this fish will actually chase your finger vigorously and snap at it through the glass.
It also will not tolerate tank mates. Then again I've heard of large black piranhas exhibiting similar characteristics.

Brandtii can be calm but they are normally completely insane, and by most owners account the least skitish piranha... they never flinch.. ever. My brandtii takes down about 30 feeders a day, and has destroyed everything that has gone into that tank.

I've so far kept about 12 different species of serrasalmus in the past and so far Spilopleura (gold p) is the rowdyist (is that a word?) My Xingu rhom rates a close second.

Caribe are quite insane to but only in groups.

S. Irritans can get pretty nuts to.

Cant really say.. As most posts, it all depends on the individual fish. One persons Serra (say Rhom, Spilo) might be a badass, compared to his Pygos (RB, Cariba, Piraya). While another talks highly about how is Pygos are the meanest mofos around when shoaling, compared to his Serras alone in a tank.
Teeths come with age also.. in my Avitar, that is the smallest of the 8 RBs that I have. He's only 7" but shows his pearly whites more than even the biggest of the group.
