When you guys add new rocks and plants to your tanks, do you usually take out your p's? or do you plant them while the p's are still in?

Are there any other benefits from re-introducing your p's to a change tank besides when adding newer fish, or when other p's are picking on an individual p?

Thanks.

When I have to do some redecorations, I let the piranha's be, and they let me be (as in fleeing to the other side of the tank)

moving the piranhas around can be very stressfull on the fish. my cariba have finally gotten their appetite back after my move 1 month ago. they were eating before, but I would usually have to take out whatever they diddnt eat . . . now they come right up to the top of the tank as soon as they see me comming with a paper towel. leave them be as much as possible, and you will have much happier and healthier piranhas.

I do decors while they're in the tank.. but with a close watchfull eye!!!
They usually chill at the other side of my tank while Im cleaning or adding decors. Caribas are sometimes the ones to look out after since they get brave at times.

Your fish probably will be scared and swim away, if you really worried about getting bit just put a divider of some sort in the tank, then you really won't have to worry.
