    I was searching craigslist, and look what I found. The piranhas dont seem to have much room left.

    That's insane! Hopefully, someone will come along that can give them a proper sized home and care for them the way they deserve.

    yeah, or someone will buy the setup and then think, "only 2 fish in such a big tank? I should add some guppies and tetras!"

    I dont understand what some people think, but wow two pirahnas in a 20 gallon.

    That would result in the most traumatic experience in the person's life. Assuming the pirahnas have enough room to turn around and go after the prey.

    BTW, what will happen to a fish if it can't turn around in its tank (like a pacu in a 10 gallon tank)

    Good morning.

    Sad for sure! When a fish is housed in a home/tank that is too small the fish become stunted and may have a shorter life span. It can also cause the spine to curve and the fish looks deformed.

    I don't think this guy has visited Fishlore yet! Someone give him our web address please! :whistling:

    And I don't think this person has done his homework on these fish yet. Probably thinks it's nice to own some, so 'wow, i'll just buy two and put 2 in my nice tank!' PLEASE, HE's gotta visit Fishlore. We'll teach him a proper good lesson!

    Actually, the pirahna species in general has been greatly abused as an aquarium fish from people who buy them just to see their feeding abilities. Don't think that'll happen unless it's a school of at least 20 in a 8000 gallon tank or something.
