Piranhas and Oscars together in a tank? If doable, or sometimes doable, what's the best way to go about this?

depends on what type of piranha's you have...redbellies seem to be the best fit for tank mates. Just about any serra you get will kill anything you put in with them.

if ur oscer is a mean little guy and is bigger then the p's it should be fine but only with reds any other fish like cariba may kill him

make sure the oscar is bigger then the piranha.
That does not matter, even if the piranha is half the size of the oscar the piranha will attack it when the oscar is not paying attention and beause of the size difference he will run, I have seen it with my own eyes. When the piranha is almost the size of the oscar it will be food or he will kill it.

By the way you double posted, With your **** banana

You can try Exodons (Bucktooth Tetras). I had 10 Exo's with 5 RBs in a 55. No space so I was left with 5. Now they're both housed in a spacier 125. Getting more Exo's since theres more space for both.

Yeah check out the previous postings. There've been numerous questions regarding P's with Oscars that would satisfy your curiosity and decisions.
