Small fish eating fish like young piranhas. I personally bought some to watch grow into full sized guppies(if that is what they grow into).
So pieranhas eat guppies. Would a (Larger than the guppies) red tailed shark eat guppies?
I don't really understand your last sentance. Do you mean you bought baby guppies to watch grow into adults?
Thanks

All fishes that have big mouths will eat baby guppy feeder fish. I'm not sure about red-tailed sharks though...

I feed feeder guppies to a chaka chaka catfish I have here,
He is currently about 3 inches long.
The difference between feeder and fancy is that feeder are closer in size and coloration to the wild fish but fancy are usually larger and colored differently.

Anything carnivourous fish that eats live food will eat guppies. Oscars love them and if they are small enough even angelfish will eat them. Betta will eat the guppy fry because they are tiny enough to fit in their mouths. It's kinda like feeding a snake live food. Fish eat fish.
