I'm surprised the loaches and bala shark are still alive. The Pacu's could survive. Are you planning on getting a bigger tank sometime? Bala's get very big and Pacu's can get like 24".

jonas (judazzz) has experiance in mixing piranhas + non-piranhas, in my own experience I have had a severum with my piranhas for a year, and I put 6 zebra danios in yesterday, and they are all fine.

Depends on may things: feeding schedule, sufficient hiding places for your dithers/cleanup fish, piranha temperament/character, tank space (yours is definitely a bit cramped), and more.
But all tank mates are potential meals, and may dissapear all of a sudden, even though they may have lasted many months or even years.

In my case, the longest-living tank mates are:
11 months: my 2 pleco's
9 months: 2 fivebanded barbs
8 months: 5 bronze cories
And some more that are in there for more than 5 months already....

i did not vote on a time scale as they could last days or years but might get nipped up alot and possibly eaten eventually

I hope they last as long as possible! I always like a successful mix of P's and no P's....it makes the tank a lot more enjoyable.

I say within the month.. Unless you get a bigger tank, space and appetites would surely play a roll in decreasing your count.

Well strike out the Bala Shark. The P's took it out this morning. Total time = 21 days. I kinda cheated though, I haven't fed them feeders for a week... just flakes. I also sold the Pacu so i'm down to the reed fish and the P's.

depends on what kind of fish are in there, what is in there? Also how often you feed the p's.
okay now I know the bala shark is gone,helps if I read the whole thread.
