No difference, different fish has different personalities. People say Rhoms Brazilian kick ass. or Venesulain kick ass and some say agrintinian Rhom kickass. Well i had to go through 4 different kind rhom with sizes ranging from 3-12" in order for me to get a kick ass one. And guess what? the kickass one turned out to be a 4"er. It was a Xingu Rhom. This proves that their is not hard fact that super red or any other piranhas is supposilty more agressive than any other.

They're the same species, so I think the difference between those so-called super-reds and tank-raised reds will be the same as the difference between wild-caught and tank-raised "normal" reds. And then there's the attitude and character of the individual fish that matters as well...
Although I've never kept them, I do think they are (at least) slightly over-rated, because they are relatively new to hobbyists (4 letters : hype). But that doesn't mean they look absolutely beautiful, and much more appealing than most "normal" reds...

Now thats an opinion. Have you owned any regular wild reds?
no, but at a lfs with carries both super reds and wild rbp, i watched them feeding and the super reds seemed more vicious, but it could just be that that group of wild rbp were wussies or that the super reds were meaner, but thats why i said it was a opinion not a fact
