For the past month I have had my 5-6 inch "green" natt and 3-4 inch "super red" rbp in a 55g with a whole bunch of dither cichlids. They have coexisted quite well but I noticed the bigger piranha showing many aggressive tendencies towards his smaller counterpart. I gave it until vacation then I would have to get another red belly to prevent these two from killing each other.

I went to the store today and to my amazement they had no rbp for sale above 1-2 inches. So I was forced.... hehe.... to buy a 3-4 inch ternetzi and put him in the tank. So now my tank has:

1 "green" Pygocentrus Nattereri
1 "super red" Pygocentrus Nattereri
1 "yellow" Pygcentrus Nattereri

They look ultra cool together and are already shoaling well. I will have pics tomorrow!

BTW, at Riverdale, I saw a 11-13 inch Ternetzi, a couple 13-16 inch Piraya, a few 12-16 inch Rhoms...it freegin rocked.

I promise pics tomorrow!

Hey X, where is Riverdale located exactly?
Riverdale is off Kennelworth Avenue. I take 95 over the Wilson, 295 North to Kennelworth, and then its like 5 miles down the road. Not a bad store when you see around 100 baby caribe in a tank, and another 40 3-5 inmch caribe in a 300 gallon or so....e

Very nice, X
And now get us some pics...


btw: how much do they charge for all those different fish?
He said the largest piraya was a "2000 dollar fish". Small terns were ~80. I got mine for 60 because he was the smallest. Medium Terns were ~120. Pretty expensive but I have never seen so many baby caribe, juvi piraya, and juvi terns in one place. It was cool.

They had a manueli or 2 as well.
