Bought two tiny mice to feed my piranha's and it was just a complete pain in the ass. Swimming around...my guys didn't even attempt to check em out. Just sittin at the bottom of the tank lookin stupid. Damn guys disappointed their father. Bought a rat as well but grew attached to him...so did my gf...she won't let me feed him to them. I'll try again tomorrow with the mice though.

what i did was left the mouse in there to die than just kept it in there floating around and didnt feed them once they got hungery enough they tore it up in like 10 seconds after that every time i throw a mouse in there its gone in less than a min. try that it might work

a rat didnt work for me they were scared sh*t less of it

You could always take a knife and stab the mice a couple times, don't kill em, just draw some blood, maybe cut off a foot or something

Strave them. Strave them until fin damage is almost unbareable. Then toss the mice in and wait to see what happens. I straved mine 3 weeks and by buddy did his pack of reds for 6 weeks, which I do not recommend you do it that long.

Frank told me that he's done experimenting with the length's of time a piranha can go without food and it is a large amount of time. His reasoning for this is dry season along the rivers where food is scarce or even noexistent and they go long periods of time with little to no food. So they have evolved to last long periods of time with little to no food. So those of you who feel uncomfortable not feeding them everyday...I don't think it will kill em to let em not eat for a few days or even weeks comparing it to the wild.
