The water parameters you mentioned would be good, but don't worry if your PH is a little higher (7.0) as I said they are quite hardy.
As far as feeding goes look for meaty, high protein foods and occasionally offer vegetables. I have heard of people getting piranha to eat pellets, but have never seen it. I fed my piranha mostly freeze dried krill and beef heart, but you can feed them almost any freeze dried or frozen food. I would not suggest feeding goldfish to piranha because they can introduce disease to your tank and they will make you fish fat and inactive. I fed goldfish for a long time and it was only after I moved away from goldfish that my piranha became fun to watch.
Cool that's not bad. But how often do you feed them? Posted via Mobile Device
