Ok last nite i removed our 3 foot redtailed cat and she is now swimming happilly about in our heated 6000litre indoor pond with here new pals....jez when u see her from above she is massive.....she dwarfs my other big cats and believe me i thought they were big.....

I have put 18 adult piranha in the 1000 litre tank they look cool too but i want to stick in about 50 so anyone looking to rehouse big red bellied piranha gimmke me a shout and add them to the family....50 adult piranha will be a killer display.......and i mkean killer so if u want your fish to join the elite send em up to Aquatic Village asap before we have enough....
cheers guys hope u all have a happy 2013!!!

would you not need a substantially larger tank than 1000L for anywhere near 50 piranha? don't get me wrong, it sounds interesting, but like lets say thats only aprox 20L per fish at 50 fish... sounds crowded to me?... a killer display would be a dark monster tank with lots of roots and shoals of piranha and cardinal tetra's or something... seen a pic of 1 before and it looked savage :cool:

Yo on the basis that piranha shoals can number up to several thousand.......and on the basis that piranha stay close together in the wild in theory adult piranha may never have more than 20 litres or so in which to move about in than what i am proposing aint that far fetched...is it so long as i can provide decent water quality and food then i'm ahead....and maybe if it works ourt i will rehouse them in something larger....like i did the redtail....
