Possibly S. spilo CF, but my spider sense is tingling and telling me that's too obvious a choice. Perhaps S. compressus? Looks very much like some photos of S. compressus I am looking at right now.

You guys......look at the fish closely. Look at the snout and the body shape, then other attributes.

I'm going strictly by body shape here with no fins to speak of. Irritans?

Fins are there except for the badly chewed caudal fin. The hypural margin should give you a small clue and S. irritans is close in finnage. Now keep going.

Yes, its a pirana.....just kidding. It's usually sold under various scientific names. And the clue is, they are never right because of the ontogeny.

I'd say rhom, not based on my immense knowledge and id-skills, but because of the tips given and the fact that is hasn't been mentioned before...
Very scientific, eh


I wonder what size it is....
