    I don't think the winter will kill these off tho. They can stay down far enough to stay alive.

    Its a Black Pacu and a red belly pacu. a lot of people have them outgrow their tanks.I used to have one. had to get rid of him though. They look real similar to piranha exept they eat nuts and berries, not fingers and toes.

    Leave it to the G & P, to screw up the fish identification on these fish!!:smile2: LMAO!! They are PACU's. You can tell this by looking at the teeth. Check out the bottom row of teeth. They look like human teeth!! This is a characteristic of the Pacu. Piranhas have sharp teeth throughout their mouth. I have to laugh at this, because the G & P are a bunch of A$$ Clowns!! Better stick to identifying fish that are native to our waters and leave the tropical fish to be indentified by people with more experience, like a kid that raises them!!:smile2: Thanks for bringing this to my attention, because I'm still laughing over this!!

    Well at least they got it right after a fisheries biologist figured it out!!:tounge_out:
