    Has anyone had any experience keeping or breeding these rather aggressive rascals? I am thinking about devoting a 100 gallon planted tank to a school of 10 – 20 of them and was looking for help and advice.

    Thanks in advance.

    Behavior: If you do decide to keep these guys, get a large bunch. They fare fine in schools or as single specimens. Don’t be tempted to mix them with other mean fishes. We seen these guys back larger piranhas (which can be sissies) into a corner. Your exodon will take center stage and wreak havoc on most other tank mates.

    Apparently they also eat each other if not well fed and don’t breed. They sound like fun

    There was a chap by the name of “Aspects” on the Practical Fishkeeping forum (currently offline) who kept a large shoal of these successfully, again it was down to excellent over-filtration and over-crowding but, he stated that he had few problems doing it that way.

    They are a beautiful looking fish, one of my lfs’s had some in recently but, they weren’t kept properly and now there’s a only a few stragglers being kept in sump tanks.

    There’s a Google cached page offering some information available but, it may well change in the near future:

    There’s some video footage of Aspects’ shoal here:

    Thanks for the links and the additional information. I think the tank I am planning is just about right for these guys. We will see if the dealer gets them in some time in the next couple of weeks.
