Here's our biggest baby piranha. All 4 are growing at good rate...even being fed cichlid food. They love flakes.
My bf was switching up tanks and wanted to get a shot of this one.

I am not exactly sure no more than 6 months I'd imagine. They were all wild caught at 2" in November. My bf was holding him so he'd have his mouth opened like that. In fact they are terrified of everything...pansies.

They're cute like bulldogs, I suppose.

Neat fish, though! Too bad we can't keep those here in the south.

Trust me they are red belly piranha, wild caught. We got them from a piranha dealer. They are easy to come by around here. And Pacu don't have sharp teeth like that. My boyfriend has kept many species of piranha over the years.

Aw he's so menacingly cute! I love his little teeth.
