you can try a beta if the p's are like 2-3 inches. it wont last long, but interesting to watch the beta move. ususally just sits in it's little puddle of water and then throw it into a tank of p's.

Bala Shark. I've had one in my tank with my P's for quite some time. They can't catch it. Oh, it's hillarious watching it just get away every time they strike at it. So I'd get a smaller one (about an inch) and give that to them and maybe they'll catch the bugger.

Go goldfish: somehow, piranha's seem to frickin' hate goldfish, and very eager to destroy them

I agree with the big comet. My Reds eat any goldfish in the tank but leave some other fish alone.

I say an Exodon.. it would give 'em good excercise, unless they end up living together in harmony..

you want to see a good show do you... chuck in a larger more aggresive species of american cichlid and see what happens, but then again the P's might not make it through depending on the situation...

I tried a beta and it just hid in my tank. It hid behind the powerhead and filters. No fun. :sad:

Bala Sharks are too easy!! I consider them silver gold fish.. weak, gay and defenseless. Im telling you get an Exodon!! They're fast and can give your Ps a good run for their appetite. Then again, the Exos might descale and kill your Ps.

Just get a couple of those god-ugly fancy goldfish, like those with bubble eyes, huge fins, or sacks hanging from under their eyes... Man, I hate those things, and would love to see some of them being awarded the piranha-'treatment'

i have a huge C. Fiesta that i am keeping untill my piranhas are big enough right now i think the Fiesta would do to much damage. had to take it out of my 120g because he was beating up all the other fish.
