Long story, but right now we were just curious as to what kind of fish this is. I thought perhaps some kind of piranha?
Sorry, pics aren't the best...

Kinda looks like a juvenile Rhombeus, or black rhom. Would be easier to identify with a different pic, without the glare. Definitely a piranha though.

X2 - not 100% sure as I'm not really a piranha guy, but it looks alot like a juv. rhobeus to me as well. It has that hump and the black ends on it's tailfin.

Thanks guys! Glad to hear it's not a pacu, since it's being fed only shrimp (would a pacu even eat shrimp?).

Looking at some google pics, it does look like a rhombeus.
Not sure the size or age.

Thanks HGI, best I could figure it was a young black piranha, when looking at google pics.
