starve them for a day or so. then feed them a small amount till they start eating it. if they don't eat. starve them another day. sooner or later they will get the hint that what you put in the tank is food. that is how i got my p's to eat food sticks and other type of food source. but make sure you watch them, they may turn on each other as food.

Wrong!
Do not starve baby piranhas for any reason. First of all, they are at a critical growth stage where they need all the food they can get. Starving them at that size can result in stunting or slow growth.

they may turn on each other as food.
And there is the second reason.

Yes very true. They are highly cannabalistic at this size when hungry.

my baby Ps ate right away when I got them. Blood worms, live fish anything I pout in there they checked it out. It was funny watching them try to catch some ghost shrimp. Those shrimp are kinda quick for baby Ps to catch.
