This tank is NOT suitable for any PIRANHA...IT IS TOO SMALL....PERIOD!

I mentioned one RD as the only fish in a 55g provided it IS 48" (4ft long).

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

One red devil would be suitable but you would be limited on the other fish you can keep with it.

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

This would be a single species tank, just looking for a fun "feeding time" fish!

Red Devil cichlid all the way they are amazing and there colours are good. You could try a texan cichlid they aren't commonly know but are very aggressive.

Do Red Devils go for live feeding like small fish?

Texan gets too big for a 55g

Most fish are usually fairly timid at feeding time, it is in the tank away from feeding that aggression will be shown.

A Jack Dempsey is fairly active at feeding time but again, limited stocking options with it.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

Yes but they should be fed live feeder fish sparingly. It can give them bloat.

I am not really looking to put any tank mates in this setup, just the one fish or small school.

Red Devils or Jack Dempsey as far as being active and aggressive with prey?

On a side note, can't black piranhas be kept alone?
