Super Reds are also known as Snake Skins. They are wild caught, and have a deeper and brighter red color than regular Pygocentrus nattereri (red bellied piranha).

Super reds are juvenile baby reds caught in the wild.

They do have brighter colors, but what alot of people see, is that they tend to lose their color and look more like regular reds.

Was just in Shark Aquarium today and he has some serious 4" supers that are 10x redder than my 6 in lfs reds. But like they said it may fade with age and doesnt mean jack about the fishes temperment.

No difference in attitude. They are the same species, and that fact that they are caught wild has no affect on them as far as agression, and as the other members have stated, they tend to lose their red altogether as soon as they reach sexual maturity, and then they look just like the basic reds.
