On a very special episode of Exotic Aquatics with Aqua Alex, today I will be talking about one of my favorite fish genera, the Serrasalmidae family! You already know that I love pacu and silver dollars. But, what about piranhas?? They need love too. While I may not have kept piranhas yet, I still love them and research them. I REALLY want to keep some piranhas, they are an interesting fish. Sadly, piranhas are illegal in 26 USA states for some reason and not many people get to keep these beauties. Hollywood has portrayed piranhas to be killers and human eaters, but that is far from true. Join me today, as I share my thoughts on the controversial topic that is piranhas! What do I think about piranhas being illegal? Plus, I will discuss how to ID pacu from piranha and share some interesting facts on Piranha.
