no only leaving the 4 of them in there , tank is only a 75g and dont wanna over stock it to much , and it gives them plenty of room to grow

thanks for the compliments man

seeing them on the internet on piranha sites and then seeing them in real life makes a big differene , they look much better to see swimming about:)

nice caribe!! look familiar................
looking beter now with more color.yeah the black spot wil get very dark,all of them were like that,good looking bunch!!.

just done a water change and ma tank looks bare ive lost thgem 4.but very hapy with the swap!.

im sure you wil soon beef them up like you piraya shoal.

your manie was in top shape so i know youll do the same with the caribe.
i noticed your tanks and glass were immaculate which means to me normaly when some one looks afte the outside normally looks after the inside!!!

lol...i think i have OCD when i comes to my tanks !
as you said yesterday dirty gass looks horrible and seeing fish waste floating around isnt much better either.
water changes are relaxing to me , especially now as rigged up a new way to fill tank back up.
they have really brightened up today and very impressed with them. glad you like the manny and know that he has gone to a good home as normally i wouldnt just give a fish like that to anyone

been watching the caribe most of the day , apart from one annoying trip out to b and q for a blind , damn wife !!!
they have started to claim territories and was having small fights , was making me nervous !!!!
p.s , they still havent eaten yet

thought the tank waz bigger....looks big but yes your right 4 is perfect for a 75gal. as for not eating it takes time for lots of fish to eat when introduced to a new home. good luck man

nice looking fish there man, are you happy with the shoal?
im very happy with them mate

they ave started fighting over territories now and possibly for dominance in the tank ,this battle has been raging for well over 2 hours now , i am keeping a close watch on them !
removed the bogwood to give them more swimming space and they seem to enjoy the extra space they have , i did how ever leave the plants in there.
