Tough question for me to answer.
I like my mixed pygo shoal but my favorite shoal is my S. geryi. With that in mind I have to go with Serrasasalmus...a huge rhom or manuelli (if you can find one) make the best display fish, and you have such a larger variety to choose from.
With Pygoscenturs you only have 3 different kinds with some variants, but with Serrasalmus you have 30+ to choose from and new ones being found all the time.

Yeh, it's hard to decide. I have 3 RBP (Pygo) and I love them, but sometimes I wish I had a Spilo or a Rhom, especially cause I hear they're more active than Reds and the Rhoms get huge which is bad ass. I think the best thing to do if you can afford it, is to have a two tanks...one with pygos the other with serras.

Both if you can...the beauty of a single Serra P and the awesome feeding frenzi of a big great looking shoal...

i leanr towards serrsalmus but you cant deny a large shoal of pygos. You gotta love their head shape! If i had a very large tank (200+) i would do a large shoal of Terns and maybe 1 or 2 caribe otherwise Serrasalmus takes my vote. Serrasalmus kicks ass!

Pygo's for me, because I prefer the look of a shoal of fish.
The "shoalable" serra's (geryi, and some others to a lesser extent) are less colorful than pygo's imo, and a tank with only one fish, no matter how big and menacing it is, is not as cool as a tank with a shoal of fish...
And besides that, I prefer the look of pygo's, with their bulldog face...

I don't have any favorite. I like them both. I like Pygos for beign able to live with others in a shoal. I also like Pgo's because there is so much color in a tank with a large shoal of them. I like Serras for beign known to be so mean the majority of them can't live in a shoal. I also like Serras because then all the attention is on one single fish in the tank.
