so I got home last night and found half of one of my 6" rb's sitting at the bottom of the tank. What the hell?! I fed the fish the day before and now they are eating their buddies? Why? He was kinda sick, he had finrot but I caught it quick and treated the tank and he was almost completely healed. Will the pick off the weak ones of the group? What were they thinking??

yes they will pick off the weaker of the group. unfortunately that is what piranhas do. they predate on those who are sickly and weak, it's a trigger for them. it is good to have an extra tank for a hospital tank to help heal injured or sick Ps so that the others do not make it lunch. sorry for your loss.

In the P world, its all about survival of the fittest. No doubt that the weaker one was targeted.

Sorry for the loss man. It sucks to lose a fish, but it's part of the game when it comes to owning P's. They are so unpredictible.

Sorry for the loss. I guess that is why so many baby natt's are eaten while they are fry and all that remain are healthy young rbs. Looks like you experienced some delayed Darwinism.

Thats not good. I would be gutted if I came home and found 1 half eaten. So far I have not lost 1 since I have started with P's. I must be lucky !
