keep your reds you have now...splurge and grab the caribe..then when you have more money buy the other reds...you could keep atleast 7-8 in there so

I say keep your 3 redz...and get 2 more caribe within the same size rang...save up some money and get another tank and another p...

fish and tank always come around....just remember as a piranha lover do what best for your fish.

I would wait until you can spare the money for 2 caribe, or maybe replace one with a piraya? They both have the most awsome colors :D

i guess your going to fish gallery to pick up the p's eh??? thats what it sounds like.....all those 5"+ reds are my buddy dairywhip's on this site....people on this site dont know how expensive it is in winnipeg.....and the caribe are only 3-4" TOPS...so 79$ for that is expensive...thats why i havent added to my shoal yet....i even have some reds at the fishgallery....right above those reds you were looking at..top right tank of that stand...my old reds should still be in there.....the owners name is Ewing....great guy...and hes the only guy i deal with for piranha's....

the caribe he wants to grab are like 80$...thats because the fish store owner lost lots of caribe while keeping them in his tank...due to aggression etc.......the reds hes might be getting should be about atleast 5" and they're 39.99$ a piece....tell the guy you'll give him 120 end of story...or do what you feel you want to man...

I agree 100% plus cariba are alot harder to get ahold of, you can always finds reds. GO caribe, don't worry abot them onyl being 4 inches, they can more than hold their own against reds almost 2 times their size as long as their is not a crowding issue in the tank. I have seen and heard of 4 inch caribe dominating 7 inch reds. They are very pugnacious and tough as nails.

no chance in the world winnipeg is going to see a piraya dude....i bet im one of the few ppl in the city to have caribe as a shoal....grab the caribe tho dude..now that i think of it....because he only has like 7-8 for sale i believe...and we probably 95% guarentee'd we wont see them again in the city only if it were special orders...your choice tho

I would say that if you can afford it get the 2 Caribe for a mixed shoal.But i know what you mean about them being so expensive the prices for these fish here in Canada is crazy.
