i bought some feeders for the first time today for my piraya for monday,i put them in with my 2 reds thinking the would last as i have never fed them feeders before.
well after the stress my p's had gone through today( netting my 2 largest) the 2 reds i have left wernt doing much then just snapped out of it .they eat one and just killed another leaving it until later and they then eat that one ,the other feeder is now on top of my powerhead waiting to die,one of my reds keeps smashing into the power head to get at him he is going mental .my reds i have left are awsome i think the larger ones i sold today must have been bringing them down they havnt stopped swimming and are kicking ass .
i love p's

yeah that is cool that you are getting to know your fish, just make sure you don't overfeed them because as Frank says they will live longer if you feed them like 2 times a week depending on the size of the p's.

you will have to be carefull when buying feeders as it is illegal to feed your piranhas live fish here in England, oh, and next time you get some exctic piranhas sent over, please tell me so i can get in on it.
