Catoprion mento (Wimple Piranha)
Similar to other piranhas, but with a distinctly elongated lower jaw giving this fish a very pugnacious appearance.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
A schooling fish in the wild but like all piranhas can be problematical when kept in aquaria. Larger fishes will frequently turn on small specimens, and it is often easiest to keep only a single speciem. However, single specimens are very shy and nervous. Ideally, keep a large group in a very big aquarium.
This fish is a predator, and will eat smaller fish as well as the scales and fins of larger fish.
