So a friend of mine breeds piranha. He has red bellies, yellow bellies, just grey ones and black piranha. The black ones are the meanest fish that I have ever seen in my life, there can really only be one in a tank at a time because they are so vicious. The pair that he had fully grown ate a rat in about 30 seconds right after it was placed in the tank.
Iím thinking about getting a few, maybe like 3-4 red bellies and then putting them in a 29 gallon tank. Everyone says that they need at least a 55 gallon but my friend said that you can keep 5 of them in a 20 gallon long if you wanted to so I am thinking 3 in a 29 gal will be O.K.
I will save up some money and hopefully in about 3 weeks I will post some pictures
