Someones offering me to trade my 8" Rhom for a 6-7" Piraya. Which I will put the Piraya in with my RB shoal.

What do you guys think?? Would you do it?? Im having a tough decision with this one..

I think a piraya would be really sweet to own...I might not place it with my reds but I wouldn't mind having a shoal of like 6 by themselves or mixed in a large tank with some caribe. The growth potential and the ability to shoal makes that decision lean towards getting the piraya at least for me anyway.

I would take that deal. Pirayas are awesome! By far my favorite pygo. How big is your tank and how many reds do you have.

Get it. Piraya's are one hell of a fish. I don't see a problem with him and the reds. You will not be dissapointed.

weigh your pros and cons... go with the worst case secenario and go with the best case scenario, see if pros outweigh the cons, if they do, go for it :

OK you guys made my mind up.. Im gonna check out the Piraya later this evening to make up the final decision. If I do trade my Rhom, I will most def go 12"+ bigger or divide the 30 gal and get 2 different baby Serras.

Also, a question for you Piraya owners. Aren't they more sensetive with water perimeters than Caribas or even red???

I think you made the right decision Zilla! Next we will have PiraZilla.

I am pretty sure that piraya are very sensitive to water conditions...

For growth reasons maybe. I over run on the filtration though. They are as resilliant as any other pygo.
