Red Belly piranhas growth rates naturally slow at about that size - look at the differance in a year and you will see that they are still growing!

Try feeding them some fat nightcrawlers. I used to feed mine just frozen food and feeders. When I started to feed them nightcrawlers, I noticed a huge difference in just two days!

At about that age, their growth rate does slow down no matter how much or what you feed them.
