New guy.. and this is an old thread... but one question came up after reading every post in the thread... Live SHrimp.. ghost shrimp whatever, is it possible for these to carry something that could infect the piranha? I can understand fish (seen it first hand with cichlids and feeders) just curious if shrimp can transmit bugs to fish.

Ghost shrimp supposedly cant get ICH or most diseases, but I personally choose to quarantine any live feeders for atleast 30 days.

Not true... There are proper ways to use live feeders (breeding them in house or an extensive quarantine) but a varied diet (shrimp, fish fillets, pellets etc) is FAR better for them than any feeder.

Risking the introduction of parasites and disease further proves my point.

Hello Guys,

Good Day! :)

Can anyone please help me with my P's. My P's won't eat anything except live feeders. I know live feeders are bad for our P's so please help me out.

Thank you kindly!
