Hey guys just getting started with my adventures in Piranhas. I recently bought a 30 gallon tank at a garage sale (two years old, dirty but no scratches). I can't afford a big tank yet or a ne tank yet. I have it set up with a Filter (with the 3 steps) and 100w heater. Its been running for 2 days now, still looks somewhat coudy but I got impatient and got a few feeder fish to help get the place ready and a Placo (named Pedro) so he would be established enough that the Ps hopefully won't bother him. How long does it usually take for the water to clear (cycle?)? What should I feed my Placos (I have frozen Brine shrimp), what should I feed my baby P when I get him in a few weeks? Will he eat beef heart straight away? How do I serve the shrimp and beefheart? I read the Ps don't like a lot of light so I put tin foil under the lights (old school lights not flurescent) and poked holes in it, will the live Plants be able to live off this light? Damn Pedro is already eating them. Thanks for any help guys, you guys rule.
