As much variety as possible

A good pellet is the easiest... no thawing etc, but may take time to train them to accept it.

Shrimp, talpia, and fish fillets, squid, octopus, crab and any available seafood trimmings

salmon and beef heart occasionally, no chicken or red meats or anything cooked.

always went with krill, shrimp and white fish pieces. variety is king with any fish, piranhas are no exception to that rule. avoid things like beef heart in too many servings. youll find they will greedily eat most things.

Go to the grocery store with 20$.

Ask them for as much tilapia fillets you can get for 20$.

You will now have about 2-3 months supply of food for your piranhas. Supplement with hikari gold cichlid pellets if the piranhas will take them.

^ solid advice

people don't associate grocery stores with fish food but you can get terrific food for cheap there.
don't hesitate to try frozen shrimp (with the tail) for a good staple diet too.

mix diet of shrimp , pellets , tilapia , beef heart , catfish fillet..

id highly suggest pellets as base and stay away from feeders ...
if you have extra space just do hospital tank and few feeders (non sucker) for min of 30 days before feeding... but still wouldnt feed more then once a month ...

If they're young you have to try training them to eat hikari gold cichlid pellets. If they won't take that though just tilapia as stated above.

Depends on the size of the fish, as many pellets as they can consume in a few minutes... if there are ones left floating reduce the number

frozen smelt were only a staple for me, they were cheap, easy to find, and can be stored a long time
