He/She should start to darken soon as it looks like your piranha is around 5-7 months old depending on your growth rate but I couldn't tell you accurately how old he/she is...this is just my guesstimation. Very good looking piranha.

IM SERIOUSLY THINKING ABOUT GETTING LIKE 2 MORE TO PUT IN THE TANK, BUT MY CONSERN IS THAT THEY MIGHT KILL EACH OTHER. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
HE MIGHT FEEL BETTER WITH MORE OF HIS KIND.???

Reds live in shoals in nature, so it would be a good thing to do. Tt does increase the risk of quarreling and injuries (mostly in the initial phase, when they establish territories and a pecking order), though. But when they have enough space, things will settle down eventually, and they will start shoaling and eating as a pack.

I'd get at least 2 more for sure: makes them much more active and confident, plus having more than one fish in a tank looks so much better, imo.

Good luck


Oh, and please turn off your CAPS: it's kinda hard on the eyes... :smile:

Thanks for the advise Judazz.
im definately going to go for it.
how much more dangerous can it get?with more than one?
With one i have no problem.
I dont remove him from his tank, i just cover one side of the tank and he goes there, while i clean the side thats dirty,and if i have too, i wait till a little bit later to clean the other side.
its a process ive gotten him use too.
but with more of his friends around ,i just cant help to think they will take a chunk of me..sooner or later..
how does it work out for you????
