hi everyone, this isnt much of a project but those who remember me will no that i was concernd about the size and colour of my red bellys. So today i took action. I bought some white shrimp to feed my fish, which i hope will help bring out there colour and i am going to do a water change 2 times a week!

So today while i was doing my water change i put my divider in instead of taking the fish out, so that i dont stress the fish out, anyway i took a video on my mobile phone it is quite poor but you can get the jist of my piranha sizes, when my water clears back up i will take pics of each individual fish and i am certain in that there growth will be HUGE this month haha ( also might be buying a uk 75 gallon for £200 )

plan sounds good

it wont let me upload the video i will be back to update the post

Stress is why they are colorless. What size tank are they in, and why is your water so cloudy?

they are in a uk55g i will post a tank shot, the water is cloudy because i used the gravel vac and staired all the crap up in the gravel when i was doing a tank clean, it is crystal clear again now. They look cramped because there is a divider in there,

THERIZMAN got bitten and i am taking no chances haha

no it is only just under 3" it still has juvenille colours. Orange belly, black humeral spot and white colour? is that not normal
depends on how white they are man....my caribe are a lighter color due to brightness of my lights..my walls are a light blue, and my substrate isnt dark....therefor they are lighter....the orange belly, and black humeral spot will most likely stay there for a long time...mine has both still and they're 6"+......post us pics of your caribe and tank...
