Serrasalmus cf. marginatus

6. July 2007

From south Brazil we could import a further Serrasalmus species. Probably it is Serrasalmus marginatus, a final species diagnosis is not yet present. Their max. size lies clearly below 30cm. There are some reports existing about a successful maintenace in groups, but socialisation is always a little bit risky for such hazardous fishes and their tankmates. So the tanks for such attempts should be as large as possible. (Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
