I was wondering while viewig this forum on piranhas. I have no interest yet in keeping them. But the question is how do you clean your tanks while not loosing any of your fingers? thumbs2:

Most P's are actually pretty timid.

I kept a 13" Black Piranha for several years and only had one or two close calls. Your usually fine working in their tanks, but you do want to be paying a little extra attention...just in case.

Having a long vacuum tube and an glass scrubber on a stick make thing safer. We had a 14" red-bellied and it would hide out in a corner when I would clean the tank.

Any pictures of this fish? I've never seen a Redbelly that size.

I do have a photo of it on CD somewhere, I'll try to dig it up. His name was Greg and he was such a cool fish.


If I didn't know any better, I'd say you are "calling B.S" on my last post...

If it was in fact that large...it would certainly be an impressive fish. Pictures are worth a thousand words.
