I have 3, 3 inch red bellies. I'm going to start feeding them raw shrimp. How much should I feed them? How big should the peices be? Should I let them thaw? Should I peel them? If you feed your piranhas shrimp, how do you do it?

if your talking regular shrimp make sure tehere are no addictives added to them and rinse tehm off first ... put in a piece about the size of waht they normally eat. also i would take of the shell part as they will not normally eat it unless along wih the other stuff it comes into play with its bites... another thing would be to famish the P's for about a day or 2 before introducing them to this new food...this way they will be glady willing to try it out good luck :cool:

yes, you got to shell them or you will find they will leave the shell floating in the tank.

I heard that too, but they usially wont eat the shell, they find some way around it and it gets left behind.
