I bought a frozen pinky mouse from the LFS and my piranhas ate it in like 5 seconds it was gone once i put it in the water. Is there anything bad they get from eating them or anything good. Is there anyway i can make it better for them like vitamin supliments and what kind shoudl i get.

It isn't good to feed any fish frozen food.

its better to feed frozen rather than live foods or you risk the chance of disease
I think pcrose meant to feed food that is still frozen. And wouldn't recommend feeding unthawed food either...

Freezing food does not provide any protection from disease. Disease can only be eradicated by the application of heat. Freezing something just slows the growth rate of bacteria, but the problematic bacteria are still there and is deadly.

FROZEN FOODS

a varied assortment of frozen foods should be the basis of the piranha diet. the process of freezing destroys most, but not all larger parasites and many protozoans. unfortunately, organisms such as the causative agent of fish tuberculosis are not affected, but a frozen well-balanced diet based upon frozen foods helps keep your fish in optimal health and thus increases their resistance to desease.
