I don't know if it's possible (don't know much about genetics and cross-breeding), but as long as hardly any species is willing to breed in captivity it seems to me it's impossible to find out.
Perhaps Frank can tell us more about this subject...

They done a few hybrids on pacus, that much I know. Hmmmmm pike too in Florida, some hybrid trout. As for piranha, if you have the right equipment to split the nucleus and invitro insert the cell, I don't see why not?

hehehe, saw that on TV, but pretty sure would be the same for fish.

so if we were to get the eggs and the sperm from to seperate species then you think it could be done? ... but chances are that it wouldnt happen naturally...
