Piranha

Piranha

There are over 40 species of piranha in the wild. Most of them are, believe it or not, are herbivorous or vegetarian. (Hollywood has a lot to answer for:-)

The most common aquarium piranha is the red-bellied piranha. The red belly piranha is primarily a meat eater. Piranhas can be bought fully grown about 6” or as babies, often no larger than a thumbnail. It is important to keep piranhas alone or in groups of four or more, since aggression among them is common. This aggressive nature will not allow a weaker fish to survive, and is distributed more widely when kept in larger groups. We have the red belly piranhas from the juveniles to adult specimens. Talk to our fish experts to see if you have what it takes to keep these guys. Animal Island Pets stocks some of the more common types of piranhas when available. Adults are best kept in large aquariums. We sell aquariums up to 220 gallons. Stop by and check out our sale items and fish.
