Hi again,as I am new to the forum, i am also new to the whole piranha buying thing.
I think with a little gentle persuasion, my parents will be willing for me to get a piranha. However, I'll have to do alot of research into the idea first. Which is where you guys come in...
I know I would definitely make a good owner,i already have alot of animals. But I dont know where to start when it comes to getting a fish of this type.
I've had a look arond at lots of pictures on here and at the different types. You all have some very beautiful and interesting looking fish. I dont want a big piranha (I know they can get to 60cm)
What is the smallest piranha you can get? and what is the smallest size tank you can keep them in? do they need feeding red meat everyday? or does each type of piranha get fed differently?
I'd be grateful for your answers and suggestions. Thanx so much :biggrin:

I dont have any opinions on you being a good pet owner, Snap. But having fish is waaaay different from having a dog, cat, or bird. For fish, especially with Ps.. its a neccessity for you to have their living environment more cared for. Propper water balance is the most important thing, along with filteration, temperature, and space. Other than that, love and dedication to the hobby will have its rewards.
Well SNAP, you've came to the right spot. We'll be here to give advice or whenever you have any questions or doubts. You made a good choice, as Ps can be ferocious in your tank, as well as stress relievers just by watching them. I have faith that you'll make a good and proud P owner and will receive great rewards... like most of ours!!!
