I have a 55 for 3 reds but If I had the knowledge and the money back then I woulda got a 75. Caus of all my decor they wont have much space wen they get bigger. Gonna have to take the big plants out and the tank will look pretty bare. If I had a 75 I wouldnt even worry about that.

I'd say a tank measuring at least 48x18x18" in size (approx. 60 gallons) - offers enough room for them to spazz out, swim and turn around without crashing into tank walls all the time.

my 3 are in a 38 and have been for about 6 months. they are fine as long as you keep them very well fed, then they wont fight as much.

but i am building a bigger tank when school is out and i move back home

I would get a 75 gal with 2 emp 400's. The tank should come with tops and a lightstrip so you shouldnt have to worry about that. Plus, piranhas dont like light all that much so i wouldnt worry.
