View Full Version : Exodon paradoxus

I've tried to do some reading about pirhanas, but I find that a lot of the information on the net is contradictionary.

Some pages say that pirhanas likes to have Exodon paradoxus in the tank, while some claims that pirhanas likes to have Exodon paradoxus in the tank for lunch...
What's correct?

Does the pirhana need friends at all? Is other pirhanas more suitable, or is Exodon paradoxus a good choice?

Well Exodon paradoxus is fast and they might survive for a while but odds say that they will be eaten sooner or later. But that might be tomorrow or in 2 years. How rows.

There are some instances when the setup have worked, so I should say that it won't work, but in the vast majority of cases it doesn't.

I see.

Does the pirhana need friends at all or does it like to be alone?

Well piranhas are a schooling fish so it's best to kept them in schools with other piranhas if possible

piranhas do best in a group of 3 and they will need a min size tank of 75gal. if u have 2 they might not fight but i would have 3 to make sure nothing happens

sry i ment to say that the 75 al would be for all 3 for life rule of thumb is 20 gal for each fish but you would need a 75 for all 3 when they are full grown check out piranhafury. com im sighed up with that site and they are real helpful
hope this helps

Thank's for straighting that out.

BTW, I checked out www .piranhafury .com, but I found i hard to find any information at all on keeping piranhas. Hardly anything there but links and commercial adds. If there is a pirhana forum or piranha page associated with that url at least I couldn't find it. :(

Thats because he gave you the wrong url.

It should be http://www.piranha-fury.com/
