help me with this fish
we have had this fish for a couple years, we bought is REALLY small and it is huge now. I cant remember the name of it and we are trying to find it out. It was a couple inches long when we got him, now he is about a foot long, or longer, and hes every bit of 2-3 lbs. We can't really keep him anymore beause he has ate and killed everything in the tank over the years and still does it to this day. We're going to give him to a casino around town to put in there tank if they want, but i just wanted some info on this guy. Anything will help guys, thanks a lot!!

Why is he on your floor? :?

I want to say Red-Bellied Pacu, or maybe even a Piranha (probably not Piranha). I may be wrong though.

Pic of him in a tank/under water?

he is crazy in the water, WILL NOT stay still especially for a picture. so when we were cleaning the tank out, he jumped out of the bucket and i grabbed the camera real quick cause ive been wanting to know what kind he was. i always say he looks like a piranah, even though i know he isnt, he sure looks like one though.
