Anyone here keep Piranha??
Just curious if anyone keeps piranha and could give me some tips at what to expect as far as feeding, tank size, and maintenance.
From what I understand recommended tank size is 20 gallons per piranha with no less than 6 fish. Also that tank mates are pretty much not an option. This is for a future tank dream that will be a reality as soon as I find a place to put a 180 gallon tank. I'm shooting to have a school of 9. My main question: How do you do a water change and how often on a tank that size? How do you stir the sand or vacuum gravel with a tank that size and is safety an issue with Piranhas in the tank? I've heard that in smaller schools as they are in aquariums they do not show aggression towards humans.
