Ok I know it is not a true Piranha but still looks sweet as hell. Picked one up today and he was the biggest and most agressive of the shoal they had them in, i remind you there ere 5 of them 2-3" in a 10 gallon tank! Anywho, I highyl recomend Whimples to everyone due to there sweet looking whispt fins to there bad ass looking lower jaw. He/She is super active, doesnt sit still more than a few seconds. Will post pic ssoon. Right now he/she is 3" and has quite a bit of red in him/her.
anyone else own wimples? Also what are your thoughts on wimples?

Well it took over 200 of them to discovery its sexual dimorphism at 1 1/2" TL, so at the size you are looking it, should be quite visible, though the anal fin is so clear you might not see it unless you really look. As an aquarium pet, they will shoal for awhile then they slowly practice natural selection with the females being much more dominant. Keep their pH down and feed them shrimp, they seem to love it and of course live guppies. They are nasty critters and a sight to see when putting a cichlid in there, they literally denude the fish of scales. For a unique novelty fish, I rated from 1-10 a solid 8.

... about the only thing I can really say about them is that the common name should be change to something more accurate like Fake Piranha or something along those lines so that less confusion is given to the customers and also probally alot of LFS as well...
