I need some help identifying what kind of piranha I have. I know it's not a red belly, and the pet store guy said it was a black piranha. I've been looking on the web, and I see some that look similar but not really sure.

He's about 2 inches in these pics, and now he is about 4 inches.

Its hard to spot a terminal band for verification, a extreme close up side profile might give us a better chance at identifying.
This is a stupid question but what it the terminal band and how is it different for a Spilo CF and a Rhom?

Check out the first couple pictures (below the top one), shows quite clearly the terminal band and how it does not touch the edge of the tail. There's also more detail in the following text.

The only stupid question is the one you didnt ask. People like Frank are more then willing to educate anyone willing to ask nicely. :biggrin:

Heard this once somewhere, really funny: There are no stupid questions, only stupid people.
