    Our common owl species, the long eared owl, is a lot smaller than that but it's still an impressive sight. Totally silent nocturnal death to small rodents.

    Ammonia is NH3, nitrite is NO2-, nitrate is NO3-. So the ammount of available nitrogen doesn't really change during the process.

    OK... since you asked

    First of all... a single piranha? Why? You'd be lucky if it doesn't pine away and gets to feed. They are, like most tetras, much happier in groups.
