You might want to have a spare tank around. Just incase he tears up your reds. It is still a serra.

Yes this is a good point. It is from the Serra species so it may be hard to keep this fish with others. Fish from the Serra species usually have a better success rate if they are alone. Good luck, let us know what you decide on.

Do you have a picture? I also read Frank's site and bought one similar to this but it could also be irritans or like it said in Frank's site...Eigenmanni.

I read that the hollandi is only an accuall species in name only because the original specimen was lost so it can't be compaired to any piranha's now. like rosecity said "it could also be irritans or like it said in Frank's site...Eigenmanni"

Sorry, i don´t think you can succesfully mix S. hollandi (or any other Serra specie except Spilos) with Reds in home aquaria for standard time (if you see them together in your LFS is because they are supposed to be together for a short time)!

some people do it, but its likely to have bad results, and if im gona spend a lot of money im going to make sure they don't kill each other off.
