my 5 rbp's wont eat. at first i was trying the whole starvation method to get them to eat in front of me. i would put in a goldfish and if they didn't eat it within 10 minutes i'de take it out and retry later, but this morning i felt bad because i know they havn't eaten anything in about a week so i threw in a nice big fat goldfish. when i got home from work 8 hours later it was still alive, not even a nipped fin. i think somethings seriously wrong. someone please help!

only thing i forgot to add is that mine ate at first at night time but only when i first got them after a while they started eating ealier and earlier so maybe you just need to stay away from the front of the tank at night..i have my tank paralell to my bed so i can see it at night that jsut might be the problem cuz these are not fish who you can sit in front of a watch f*ck sh*t up like jaws but thats the hard an real truth of piranhas...they are very careful fish and will make sure that the fish is a prey not a predator
