Hi,

My LFS ordered "Serrasalmus sp. (wild caught) 1"" from his supplier, he got these fish, only labeled "piranha". Seems like baby nattereri to me, or am I wrong? The same supplier also sells "Pygocentrus nattereri", so I thought they knew the difference..

Its a little to small to really tell what it is you may have to wait until its a little bigger. But about 99% of the time the lfs have no idea what they are talking about. Its probably a baby pygo.

I have too many pygos already, and really want a serra, so trying to figure out what it is before I decide wheter to buy or not. The LFS promised me to call the importer on monday, but doubt I'll get a good answer from them. I could simply wait a while, but he tossed them in a tank together with bigger nattereri, affraid they might get eaten.

I noticed these piranhas seem to have a quite "pointed" back, but I can't remember if my rbps looked like that as small.

Well its just to small to tell it could be a serra or something else. But I never trust my lfs but I see you are in a different country so things maybe different.

It's in stock in a LFS here in Halden, so I considered buying a 1" for a smaller tank. Could be fun to see what it turned out to be (if it was a serra).

I'm still up for the Aquamanias deal, although it seems too good to be true.

My advice to you is stay out of the PSCI ID forum until you get more experience. The fish is P. nattereri.
