Reply. Hello Mike. Congratulations on spawning your Piranhas. We have never owned them or spawned them. But we assume the babies are very small and will probably need very small food.

I have a suggestion for a piranha's diet. I use a 10 gallon tank to store my feeders in. this is to insure there are no problems with the feeders( treat for any symptoms at this time).
 
I also buy fresh beef heart. Ghost shrimp are great in many ways. They eat all left overs from my fishes feedings. They also provide a extra meal. since I started getting ghost shrimp my fish has bright colors emerging. Baby snails can be crushed and a piranha will eat them quick.
 
Just thought that may help fellow piranha lovers to give their fish a nice healthy diet and a long life.

Hello, I'm interested in piranhas and have had them before. I had 2 in a 20 gal aquarium, but they lived for only two years (they were my very first fish). The second time I got piranhas I got a bigger tank,72 gal, and I had 5 piranhas .
 
These I had for 3 years but got too expensive to keep. I ended up giving away 3 of the 5. one of the last two lived for about 3 weeks untill the other ATE IT. These fish were eating better then I was! I fed them goldfish (lots of goldfish,about100 per month), fastfrysteak (raw,of course), and worms.
 
I Have two questions: 1. Is there any good dry food I can feed them as a supliment to goldfish and steak? 2. How big of a tank do I need if I want to breed them
 
Thank you for any help you can provide;
James
 
p.s. I love your web site
 
 
 
Reply. Hello James. It is not surprising that when you removed 3 of your 5 Piranhas, the behavior of the remaining Piranhas changed, and one ate the other, because Piranhas are schooling fish and should live together in a group with at least 6 Piranhas of their species.

We have never kept large Piranhas, and so we do not have experience feeding large Piranhas.

Thank you for your complimentary comment.

I was just checking out your page on piranhas and I noticed your red-bellied piranhas and the information about them. You gave their scientific as Serrasalmus Naterreri which is incorrect. They were once named Serrasalmus but after much more research the were named Pygocentrus Naterreri. Just thought you might be interrested.
