That's quite a bite.

It says quite something that the pleco high-tails it out of there as they start eating.

I really like the way they sparkle. Like they fell into glitter :)

Yea, they really are pretty when they get bigger.

And when they're smaller, they have the black spots like silver dollars.

I had an oscar in there, they never really got after him, but I was so constantly worried that I ended up finding a new home for him.

Anything is possible, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I've heard that armored catfish, and pacu are "acceptable" by some piranhas but it really seems to come down to, how many piranhas you have in the space, their temperament and what type of fish you're attempting to put in there.

With the first video I wonder if the fish was fed well before they shot the video. Because he really doesnt show a whole lot of interest. Which could explain someone brave enough to do this... :dry:

I think I'd wear chainmail up to my shoulder if I had to clean that tank!
