I was at Korger today and picked up some raw shrimp and catfish. The shrimp are grey and fully shelled and the catfish was cut up into "nuggets" Man when that piece of catfish hit the surface it was the best frenzy I have had yet. With it's nutritional value I have been reading about and apparent appeal to the Piranha I would recommend it to any Piranha ower.

My 2 cents.

Catfish is definitely a nice food and usually you can get it decently cheap.

My big rhom definitely likes smelt the best of anything though.

Nice, I'm glad to hear that your piranhas enjoy it. I've also heard the same from this site before. Maybe one day I will try feeding catfish to my piranhas and see how they like it.

Although catfish contains thianimese, I feed it to mine all the time.
I don't buy into this thianimese stuff too much...

A buddy of mine grows the biggest piranhas around and feeds his fish nearly nothing BUT catfish... so go figure.

It's cheap, the fish love it, it stays together in the water better than anything else I've tried.

Do you have any pictures of the Catfish nugget? I would like to try some with my small pygo natts. I've been feeding them bloodworms, beefheart, hakari sinking carnivore pallets, raw white shrimp with the shell and tail, muscle. I'm always looking for something new for them to eat. If you have pictures of the Catfish nugget please post.

Thanks

I feed my P's beef hearts, squid, clams, and whiting.
Whiting seems like good white meat, and the fish love it.
It is only about a buck a pound, so pleanty cheap.

I tried catfish nuggets once and it was devored in a few seconds.
Catfish nuggest sell for like 4 bucks a pound at our local supermarket.

Heck, my little Red Bellies will attack ANYTHING that falls in the water.

Try whiting one time, you be amazed.....

7 Red bellies about 4" in size & growing.
135 gallon tank
