Very good looking fish you got there
I hope my Piraya ends up looking like that!

How big are they and the tank?

D in #s, my limited experience w/ tern & piraya has been very good .... the Piraya break-up tern aggression and the terns get between the piraya when they are having a mini scrap .....they rarely, if ever go after the other specie... any real aggression has been limited to tern on tern, or piraya on piraya.Again that has been minimal due to the other type of pygo breaking it up...I personally like the contrasting colors and shape of the tern & piraya..and they dont seem as aggressive as Caribe

Those terns are awesome. Just great color on them. What diet do you have them on?

RBP, I agree...I used to have 15 big anubia on top however, with the water flow in the tank(3 rio 2500s on two wet/drys & 2 emp 400) I can only provide surface cover through artificial attached via suction cups to the top......as far as diet, earthworms (canadian night crawers from Walmart !) shrimp, various fish fillets,and an occational exodon paradoxus (small group patrols the surface, another reason I have the thick cover on top)
