You've to starve them for a week and try to feed them fillet. If they still will not eat, then starve them for another week. I use catfish fillet for mine and they love it. They can go for over a month with food and they'll not starve themself to death.

yep, dont give them any other options of food to eat, if they dont eat what you want dont feed them any thing else till they eat it. once they try it it will grow on them. also this method of starving may sound harsh, but piranha, are capebale of going in excess of a month with out food.

if they just wont eat it off the bottom you can hang it mid water in the tank with a piece of threat of something. it gets a little annoying if they dont eat it and you have to keep doing it, but it will be worth it in the long run if it works.

I was in the same boat. I starved my Ps for 34 days, trying to get then to eat fillets and they wouldn't touch them. I ended up buying a bag of smelt from the grocery store and they loved it! For my Ps, I guess it had to look like a fish still before they would eat them.

im not trying to harsh anyone out but how many of these My pirahna wont eat anything but feeders threads do we need i see like 2 a day
all it takes is a simple topic search or check the pinned threads and we wont have a bunch of ppl who only feed feeders cause its fun to watch them eat trying to figure out why thats all they want if you were a baby and all u ate was candy all you would want is candy right? maybe a mass memo to all newbies about the search option and pinned threds might help i dunno maybe its just me but i doubt it
search and u will recive
peace
