Just picked up a serrasalmus marginatus!

I've named him Cthulhu. He's a spotted piranha. I haven't been able to take pictures of him. He's still hiding. When we tried to bag him at the store he bit through the first bag! On the second try we triple bagged him, put a brown paper sac around the bag, and the lfs guys gave him some sort of fish sedative. Ever since I got him home he's just been hiding under some drift wood. Must be hung over....

here's a link to a pic:

Ok took some pics...

he was out and about today. There were a few cory cats in the tank I couldn't get out (too many hiding places for me and a net), and apparently biting one in half put a little spring in his step...
