I tried like a mofo to get info from the people on this, they are very hush hush about. My advice, they are very close related to Natts, so in theory it should be very similar to breeding them

Piranhas breedin the wet season. So stimilate the dry then the wet. Do your homework first on the weather conditions during these seasons and copy it. I will tell you how it all works out if I am successful.

you have to immatate a river to breed caribe. the tank must be larger then 200 gallons. cause caribe are thicker and they are more aggressive and they require more room

Is that the major secret to breeding Caribe? To imitate a river? Oh, I think there is much more
involved. And I don't think you need a 200 gallon tank to do it.

It can't be some mysterious way to do it, i believe the only reason for so little amounts of people doing it is because there is really not a lot of people who have a tank only full of larger mature caribe. And also one of the breeders i've heard about only has like 5 caribe in a 100 gallon, so i don't think tank size matters. It's probably simple as this if you get lucky enough and have a male and female in the tank and there tank conditions are good and they are feed enough that should be all it really tanks.

Also trying to imitate a wet and dry season seems ridiculous what are you going to do like drain 3/4 of your tank and just leave them in that little about of water for like a week, then fill up the tank all the way and repeats, its got be nearly impossible to imitate than in an aquarium and I highly doubt the people that are breeding them are doing all that, also if you has some way to make a lot of money like lets say you were breeding piraya (we all can hope
) would you really be posting what your conditions are or how to do it. I think not.
