Yup. Niether does my 14 incher or the 10 incher I had. I have also heard the same from other large rhom owners.

Yeah my six incher doesn't eat much either. When I throw some feeders in, I find the head on the gravel the next day or a slashed and bitten (but not eaten) body floating at the top.

you could also try shrimp we give our rhom and altuvei half a peice of shrimp and they seem to eat most of it, he may eat more if you try the shrimp

I have a 12 year old, 11 inch Natt that is the same way. He eats almost nothing for weeks at a time while the smaller, skinny ones gobble up all the food, but he still stays plump and healthy. I guess full grown piranha do not need much to sustain themselves!

maybe the fat ones are less active so they require less food?

Cool. Spot on.

I know you know your sh*t, but for the sake of others just getting into the hobby and didn't know, I just wanted to ask that for archives sake when they read it.

Thank you for not taking offense with me for asking Nitro. :smile:
