I currently have a 120 gallon tank that houses 2 oscars, a pleco and a shovelnose catfish, I want to start a pirahna tank and I am going to, once the fish in the 120 are gone. The question is: How many pirahnas can I fit in there?

Most Piranha buffs will tell you 20 Ps per gallon. But in my opinion, anything larger than 80 gal can hold 2-3 more. Im 2 Ps over the rule with my 125 gal, and everythings perfect!!

actually a 125 show is 72x18x20. I know my 125 that I had wasn't a narrow 13" depth.

the piranhas will not attack your hand they are just as scared of your hand as you are to them so dont worry but just dont chase them around with your hand they could bite it out of defending them selfs

BTW in a 60 gal tank you could have 3 in there with no problems and will still show natual behavior also the 20gal per p is only up to 85 gal after that it depends on the tank
