Interesting article, I liked the description ‘tiny tanks’ that suits corys very well

Edit: I didn’t have to register using the first link

Hahahaha go Corys go.
What I think is strange nowhere the secretion of a defense-poison is mentioned.

Also I don't like the kind of experiment, but love the result hahaha.

I agree that it is kind of cruel, but if it helps save lives, then I personally think it is worth it. But, on the other hand, they even mentioned the live food many piranha are fed, so it is really just the piranha getting a different dinner...

Interesting....Survives attack by piranha. Is rendered blind by having its eyes pecked out by a 1" female apistogramma. Life is interesting

Uhhhh how exactly does this save lives?
Corys appear not to be the "staplefood" of piranhas as well.
So what is the use of this experiment.
Next one is Polar bears vs pinquins ?

The article mentioned body armor, but the principle might be modified for use in cars too at some point (maybe not, I'm certainly no material engineer). Or shark proof wetsuits...
I meant no offense, I was honestly kind of shocked that they published such an experiment in Nat Geo.

My male was the one the Cory's had to worry about. He figured out the weak spot around their gills and mass murdered my Sterbai. It sure as heck wasn't to protect fry, either. He ate more of them than the Cory's did. The female just gives them a peck on the haunches to shoo them off.
