If u read my last post "EMERGENCY!!!!!!!!!!" and i explained to you that my 1'' rbp received a wound that wouldnt allow him to eat anything, everything he ate would come straight out of the wound, the wound was located in his stomach, and some of his intestines were torn up from what i could see, and after giving him a salt treatment and not feeding the rbp the wound began to heal... if i fed him the wound would just keep opening up because his stomach would expand... so i didnt feed him for 4 days and now his almost completely healed... there is still the scar and a little flesh wound but he's digesting his food now and i honesltly cant believe this i knew that p's had amazing healing ablility but i never knew they could regenerate new organs and repair them.

That's awesome! Just feed lightly and infrequently so he doesnt rupture his stomach still, and leak internally. That tissue is quite weak during healing. And if possible make sure he is having good healthy stools before full feeding resumes.

Thats some incredible healing power, though.

Awesome man, I always hate to hear or see a piranha that may die...which is why I refuse to go to one of my lfs coincidentally. Anyway, Glad to hear your guy is doin well and sounds like he'll pull through and live a long life.
