Bought 5 goldfish to use as feeders for my piranhas but they didn't eat them. So i was kind of stuck with 5 goldfish.

I put them in a large filtered polystyrene box just as i didn't have much else to put them in.

Is polystyrene fish toxic or anything? Noticed its bubbling a little from the base but that might just be air bubbles.

Before i get any comments from the goldfish police please understand that this was a relatively urgent attenpt at a solution to occupy my piranhas from attacking each other.

I believe that's fine I used to do that when transporting fish.
The bubbles are the same thing as the bubbles you see when you first set up an aquarium.

Thank you i thought it would be alright but wanted to make sure.

Its bad though because now I'm kind of getting attached to these goldfish. If only the **** piranhas would have eaten them!

As a last resort even tried with my buttikoferi but he was being awkward and wouldn't either.

Yeah, I don’t think piranhas are as aggressive as they’re made out to be. A long time ago, I had one living with a goldfish for years. Actually if I recall, the goldfish was a bit of a bully. Some would find their coexistance cute, then one day I found the goldfish dead and hollowed out.
