Thought i'd start a thread to see what everyone thinks is best for piranhas.
I feed my rhom mostly krill,cons,molly,silversides,tilapia.Frozen food gets soaked in vitachem for 1hr before feeding.

I've always figured a varied diet is the way to go. As far as fattening them up quickly...Alaska Pollock works the best. Just my opinion though.

Pellets Hikari to NLS, White Fish anything from Tilapia to Catfish, Frozen krill, night crawlers for protein, ghost shrimp for live feedings, Pellets have a lot of essential ingredients that other foods do not have though IMO.

I vary what I feed. I use tilapia drenched in vitachem as a staple. Then I use scallops as a treat as well as the occasional beef heart. Every so often I switch the tilapia with catfish so they don't get tired of the same old food because sometimes they are picky eaters. As long as I vary feeding times and types of food they usually devour anything I put in the tank. I use pellets sometimes, but since they poop a lot of the pellets out I don't do too much. If anything I just pack a couple pellets in the fish fillet. Shrimp, despite having thiaminase...i guess...seemed to give me good results when it was my staple.

I feed mostly white fish (Tilapia, Haddock, Catfish etc), sometimes raw shrimp (shell on), along with the occasional handful of crickets or a few crayfish if they're cheap.

I got to try that.
"The misfortune of one is the fortune of another there is no evil here only good. That which seems cruel or savage is simply an efficient form of beauty. Without which there can be no hope for balance."

The piranha species is known for its aggression, which for some enthusiasts is the whole point (apparently, it’s fun to watch a big fish quickly turn live bait into a bloody pulp).

“the most ferocious fish in the world” that will “rend and devour alive any wounded man or beast; for blood in the water excites them to madness.” “the embodiment of evil ferocity; and the actions of the fish exactly match its looks.” - Theodore Roosevelt, Through the Brazilian Wilderness

wow u guys really treat ur Ps..i usually fed my reds cichlid pellets on the reg and throw in a treat like a feeder {from my Quarantined feeding tank} or some shrimp {shell on}....but from what i see ..what u r feeding them is very good .

I just like to use the pellets cause its less mess and it keeps the water clarity clear...ive found that when i throw in a bunch of different protiens{meat} that my water tends to spike on ammonia for the next day or so...
