This batch of pictures shows how Redbellies out their agression: from top to bottom you can see how how one of the guys tries to attack and bite my finger, how one of the piranha's wants to assert his dominance by yawning, how two piranha's are engaged in a fight, and lastly the bottom two pictures illustrate what injuries those fights can result in (luckily it was only a superficial bite, but the pictures clearly show what substantial damage these fish can cause to each other).
Unfortunately, the quality of the pictures is mediocre at best, as it is not easy to capture fast-paced action under low light conditions in great detail (well, not for me that is...)
