I was reading on Shark Aquarium that these species can be shoaled (Serrasalmus medinei or sanchezi). Anyone tried it?
Well I have a 90 Gallon that I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with. I'm gonna have 3 baby rbps and maybe 1 piraya in my 75 Gallon. The 90.....I'm just exploring ideas, maybe a piraya and caribe shoal. However, 3 sanchezi's might be worth a shot.jerry_plakyda said:Technically Serrasalmus species are solitary fish. It is at what cost you are willing to put up with such an experiment. Hey, i've seen it first hand a shoal of elongs packed in a 20 gallon with no fin nips....It's all up to you...People will tell you no, others will say go for it...I doubt Sanchezi or any Serra would successfully shoal without a very large tank. My experience is that it will destroy anything that moves. When i had mine in the 55 i had a pleco 3 times his size and he still killed it by drilling a hole through his head.

My gf is gonna be pissed when she gets back and see's her black molly gone.azeral26 said:Holy sh*t! I dropped a black molly from my 75 into my baby p tank, 1.5 inches. 3 of them in there. They chased it behind the weeds and it was no more. First time I've watched them do it.. My little rbps are aggresive.
