I want to try keeping a frogmouth catfish (chaca chaca) with my red bellied piranhas. I know nothing is 100% with aggressive guys like them, but I figure if a pleco will a frogmouth will too. Chaca Chacas barely move so i think it might work

I also heard frogmouth cats are able to change the tank water perimeters, because they excrete (sp?) some sort of substance that messes with the pH: I'd look it up at planetcatfish.com before figuring it out the hard way.
But I wouldn't do it anyway, since chaca chaca's are hideous creatures - to me, they look like a turd :eek:oh2:

I've got a good idea, wht not just put anything with your piranhas?
mind you, I am starting to think you have pacus and not piranhas, how can you think to add a frogmouth cat with your red-tailed cat and your "piranhas" and your barbs and stuff?
piranhas don't live with other fish - well not for long, anyway.

great post dude,
that is very interesting about the ability to drop the ph in a tank.

innes, your starting to think wrong. i have 4 red bellied PIRANHAS. I know this because i have kept pacus before and I can tell by the jaw structure. Dont make statements you know nothing about.

this kind of frogmouth cat will remain motionless for long periods of time, even when prodded. they also try to attract other fish to them using a lure.
These points alone would make me think it would attract a piranha with its lure and get eaten without even trying to get away.

If your lookin to add a bottom dweller try a wolf fish thats at least 8 inches. I've had mine with 8- 7" RBP's and so far so good(about a year). The wolf fish will actually snap back if threatned. Plus did you ever see the teeth on a wolf fish. The other good thing is that wolf fish have very rough skin texture making it difficult to bite into.
