I would say it will max out at 6 inches and then grow slowly from that point on. You have to have a tank thought to maximize growth. You will not be getting good growth putting it in a 10g! :rock:

a red-belly will grow slightly more than 1 inch a month untill
it reaches 6-8 inches long

also if you looking for a bad-to-the-bone piranha you are
going to be highly disapointed with a solitary red-belly in a
33 gallon

yes a red belly will be ok in a 20 for a couple months
but if you want a extremely aggressive piranha and
arnt afraid to spend a liitle cash buy a large rhom 7+
inches or an elongatus both of these species are extremely
agressive

ditch the red belly
