5 caribe, 1 red, 1 piraya, 1 ternetzi, 1 geryi, 1 spilo in a 205.667 gallon tank? Are there any other serras that would go well in there? Is there anyone here who keeps serras and pygos in the same tank? I know it is about 20 gals per fish for mixed pygos, what about mixed pygos and serras?

Sorry, I have 2 geryi and 1 spilo and I know they would not work with pygos. You may be able to get away with a spilo cf, but it is risky

I'm thinking maybe one kind of serra could work with pygos if money is no object but if you were to try and mix them you would need a massive tank plus I would throw out the piraya option out the window as I hear they are far more territorial and deal fatal bites vs. the reds giving warning bites when upset with another piranha or disputing turf. I've never owned a piraya so I cannot say from experience only from what I hear. Still the odds of it working even in a very large tank are slim to none. I can say this...in a 55 gallon coexisting are 2 red bellies and a gold spilopleura. The gold is 3-4 inches which is much smaller than my friends adult reds but beside fin nips they're doing fine.
