what is this fish?
i do not think it is a piranha because of the size but what is it?
Looks like a payara but I could be wrong.:? Edit: Not close to payara.
The name Piranha on Steroids is just wrong.:evil: What are they trying to do? Strike fear that piranhas really eat flesh?:roll: I don't think that fish even suits in the genus Serrasalmidae.
Okay, it's confirmed as a Goliath African Tigerfish (Hydrocynus goliath).
What Lupin said. However, it is a characin, so piranha on steriods is not entirely inapt. However, it's in the family Alestidae, so more apt would be a Congo Tetra on PCP.
Very cool fish and have become quite available in this hobby as of the last few years.
Heh, i just showed those pics to my housemates nephew and he ran and hid behind the sofa. Now that'd be a cool reaction to a tank!
