It could go either way, how territorial are you 4"s now? I know that I have 4 at 4" and if I would add another that they would destroy him almost no matter the size. They have precise rankings in my tank. I wouldn't recommend adding 2" Ps to that tank. Now maybe if it were a new tank that none of the fish had established territories. My advice you tank is pretty much at its limit now, and I wouldnt risk wasting your new Ps. Just be patient and wait for a larger tank then it would be safe to add some smaller ones.

to be in a safe side..add more hiding place, lower down your temp, so thier can get less agrressive..

on the other hand I suggest NO because piranha are very unpredictable..anything can happen. 2" and 4" are not that much different side but you dont want the big one to pick, fin nip kill the small one. It up to you. I say 3 in 75gallon are perfect #..

very nice set up!..it really up to you. just keep in mind that piranha are predictable, you never know what going to happen. you can push for 4 in there. just keep your temp low.
