I like uncramped. When these guys get larger I am going to upgrade their tank again and just keep these three in it so they'll have lots of room. I like how active they are when they have swimming room.

The more room they have, the more comfortable the fish will feel, and the more"natural" behaviour they might show: therefore uncramped.

I prefer cramped. Although when I say cramped I don't mean 10 6 inch spilos in a 40 gallon tank. I mean stretching the 20 gallon per fish rule, but only by a couple fish. :smile:

A lot of people on this site go by a general rule of thumb of 1 piranha for every 20 gallons. Personally I'm less conservative. I usually go with 10gallons per piranha. I feel a slightly cramped tank keeps all your p's in check and honestly looks much better. I mean go to your lfs or even to shark aquarium and see how many fish they put in some of these smaller tanks.
