Still an Identity crisis
Description : I have had no luck in trying to get these fish identified ,except for Myleus species(could be correct). They were sold to me as juvinile Myleus gurupyensis i bought 4 of them 2 turned out to be M. gurupyensis & the other 2 i still don't know what they are,they looked similar to M gurupyensis(eye size gave it away in the early stages).The attached pictures show them at approx.15 centimeters(6 inches).Can anyone tell me what they are OR can someone put me onto any other website, database, person that may have some information about SILVER DOLLARS, PACU, PIRANHAS, ANYTHING SIMILAR.

They could well be M. asterias (syn. gurupyensis), or one of several to be honest, but without checking against the original descriptions I doubt you will be able to find out exactly which, and it is confused further by the fact that anal fin shape differs between the genders as you can see from the pics. When you look at the group I have here at work (M. rubripinnis as far as know) it would be easy to think the males and females are different species given the colour pattern and finnage.
