My Piranha now that they have reached 3 inches are constantly squaring off against eachother. Its not just one or two that are doing it but each one is going to the other and squaring them up and there tail goes up in the air and they butt heads and spin in a circle. I am not alarmed its just that I want to know why they are doing this ? They are displaying the behaviour that Natts Caribe were doing in his Caribe fighting video.

Very true.. its natural for Ps to fight amongst each other constantly to show whos the dominator. This might also be another way to try and find areas for territorial space.

after they find out who is the boss, will they stop fighting ? and does a P have to die inorder for them to decide who is king of the tank ? Does the pleco count ?
no piranha will always square off to show who more dominate.just keep them well feed..most of the time the wimpy one will swim off..with fin nips and somebody shots..but once again its normal for them.and plecos don't count.thats just another meal in the waiting.

You just got your new tank, right? So it's most likely re-establishing the (disrupted) pecking order, like some said before. The fighting will most likley not last too long, but it might be advisable to keep a hospital tank standby as long as they are still doing this, just in case...
