Question : I have looked through many different forms of books and other media sources at my local borders store where my cousin works, and have tried to succesfully arrive at the conclusion that my latest addition to the aquarium is a yellow ternetzi.....but lately he has been showing a little red on the anal fin and in sunlight a little pink on his flanks (reflection if the angle is just right) but for the most part, he is usually yellow-gold everywhere...any suggestions ?

The pic you have posted is of a Pygocentrus Nattereri or red-bellied piranha.It is not a Ternetzi aka Yellow form Nattereri.Terns have some red in th anal fin but none in their eyes.Yours has red in the eyes from the way the picture looks.Terns also do not have any red on the gill plate or abdomen.

Just thinking the same thing the eyes are of a Red belly.

My 10-11" Rbs look just like that picture of your P. Alot of Ps do loose coloration becuase of age and depending on water balance in the tank. How big is your P and how long have you had him?
