Last night i had fresh deer meat.No marbled no fat- pure meat. They loved it and i get home today and my 11" piraya had his ass handed to him by my 13".Never a scratch on him til now.He has teeth scratches all over him with a chunk out of his side.He been treated as we speak.Also in my 55 the 3 piraya were feed meat and one has a bite out of the fin.No more red meat for me.Meat might not be why both tanks went nuts but thats my story and im sticking to it. Anyone else experience this?

The only real 'bloody' form of diet food i give my piranhas is beefheart. I often find pure lean meat contains too much fat and destroys my water quality. Mabye the large amounts of pure 'blood scent' in the water drove your piranhas into a feeding/killing frenzy, like in the wild when they find a dead or injured animal, i dunno its just a guess...

Coincidence IMO, cant see any reason why feeding them red meat would make them attack each other


I never had any problem after feeding mine steak.

I always thought that red meat was just to fatty for P's plus it makes the water all nasty and greasy.

aggreed. Fish are not like dogs where the taste of blood messes with their mental. I think this is coincidence more then anything else.
I do hope your fish pulls thru tho.
