I am picking up a piraya and another yellow natt(tern) for my tank this weekend.
That will make my 125 gallon tank consist of: two 4.5-6" wild reds, four 5-7" cariba, two 6-8"yellow natts(terns), and one 6" piraya. 9 pygos seems like a lot to me so I am going to try it for a while and see, if it is too over stocked, I am going to sell a couple cariba.
I just closed the deal and I am pumped!!!!!


Just thought I would share!

That's awesome Jeff. Congrats on the new pick ups. I want to see some pics of all of those piranha together in that tank. I hope it works out for you.

Did you order from George? Got a 6" yellow natt from him a couple weeks ago and want to get a piraya in that size also. Right now I'm at 1 8+ inch cariba, a 5" cariba, 3 tank bred natts from 6-7" and the 6" yellow natt in a 125. I don't think I'll add any more than the piraya for a total of 7 fish, but I would love to get down to Milwaukee sometime and see yours. I would esp. like to see the piraya and your wild natts. Anyway, congrats.

Congrats Jeff
(lucky bastard...)

Shoot some pics when they're acclimatized, eh? (or even before tossing them in the tank, with a ruler next to them...)

No, I am picking them up from a guy in Chicago, private sell, but I think he got them from SA.....but not positive. I think 7 is a good number also, and that is what I have now. My plan is to remove the large piece of driftwood to give them a little more room and see how it looks. I personally dont like the look of an tank that is too overstocked so I will probably be selling 2 cariba or 1 cariba and one red, not sure of the combination yet.

Thanks guys, I will have pictures up as soon as I add them and they get settled down.

Hey gross what piranhas you like better caribas or reds. I like caribas better. They are more aggressive towards other fish and people(if you put your hands in and a red will just run and hide)

I like them both, but I do think cariba are prettier. I subscribe to the theory that aggression is an individual trait. I have had some very aggressive reds, and my cariba were very passive until I added the wild reds. My favorite fish in my tank the smallest red, he takes no crap from anyone and is the first to greet me when I stick my face to the tank.

Post some pics when you get them. I'm still need ideas for my tank. I don't know what to put in there. Maybe a mix tank might be it.

Nice man, pics when you add them, and maybe before you add them so we can see them up close!
