Red Belly Piranhas? I would give each piranha at least 25 gallons of space. Message me if you want to know more information on piranhas, as I have kept them for over 5 years.

piranha also need 2X's the flow rate from your filter that you would normaly use i would make an educated guess for 120L that you would need something abouts 1200-1300 LPH(litres per hour)
also try to make sure that your filter has a large foam box to it as there is lots of waste from these fish

make sure you buy them all the same size or you will have a blood bath

other than that i can't help as i have never kept these
10-12 exodons or 5-6 wimples maybe, but definitely not something as big as an rbp. The smallest species of piranha I know of are Sanchezi piranhas and they grow 6-8 inches max.
