my ps have been skittish these past day and crash all over the place in my tank. they slam realllllllllly hard head onto the glass. im kinda worried that they could someday break it with enough abuse. so my questions is, how big of a piranha would be able to break 1/2" thick glass aquarium??? they usually hit the width glass of the tank. thanks!

You need to ask the question why are your fish so skittish? Water parameters, lighting and tank decor are the primary factors. See what you can do for the fish. There are a few good threads on the site for tank setup, decor and lighting. IMO, its no fun watching your fish freak; and believe me, its not fun for them either.

yeah ive only ever heard of one fish that has busted a tank and thats a tiger shovelnose catfish and that was only a story ( not a first hand account) of it happening so i think your plenty safe
1/2 glass is very tough stuff
youll be fine
but find out why they are stressed and try to rectify the problem
later

I get a little nervous as well of my fish in a glass tank...I have a 4 piece glass lid on my 140 gal- and on a few occasions in the middle of the night I've heard the fish slam into the glass lids of the tank causing quite a state of panic on my end

What are you doing that is making them freak out so much? I havent personally heard of any Ps busting a tank. Other larger fish can easily though.
