I currently have 9 rhb's ranging from 6 inches to around 9 inches in a 200 gallon tank. They are going thru approximately 400 goldfish a week. Is that too much, or should I cut back?

Well get them on pellets ,, much cheaper then goldfish and wayy more nutritious ..
You could get some frozen shrimp,tilapia,salmon,catfish ,cut in chunks ,add some vitachem and freeze it.. i use it together with pellets and blood worms (mine are 3-4inches) and they have awesome color and healthy

Don't feed goldfish at all as they are members of Cyprinid family (carp fish) and should be avoided, as they have growth-inhibiting hormones ( Thiaminase/Vitamine B1 inhibitors), which negatively affect your piranhas health and development...i would feed them minnows or tilapia or any other type of fish...fresh fish section at your grocery shop has a good selection...and feed as much as they can eat in 3-6 minutes 4 times a week...

Be respectful, as we are all in this together.
