Mixed community tank holding
Angel fish
Platies
Danios
Denson barbs
Clown loach
Bristlenosed pleco
Hatchet, well at the moment it could jump out at any time!
Cardinal tetras

And after looking that both Robert and Trent have set up shrimp tanks, I am thinking maybe I should get some for my sump. Would they survive in the main tank?

Probably go with a lightly planted setup with bog wood. Corys , some type of tetra and hopefully a pair kribs or another type of dwarf ciclid I haven't nailed it down yet any suggestions welcome.

How many Piranhas Ski?

How fast do they grow and what do you feed them?

Im considering a Piranha tank myself....Whats the minimum size tank you would recommend and can they be housed with any other fish at all? Like would they destroy plecos?

I have 10 red bellies in a 5' * 2' tank (4 3 yr olds and 6 2 yr olds)

Started off with 10 3 years ago but was only left with 4 of that shoal so got the six more. Better to get more when starting cos they do pick each other off when young.

They do grow pretty fast and i feed them pellets, squid and lance fish. Sometimes trout but it messes up the water.

I'd say you could get away with 4 or 5 in a 4' tank.

I've seen a few people keeping pleco's with them but i don't cause i'd say they'd have a miserable life in there.

Here's a current pic. They're not for everyone cos a lot of people find them boring but i love keeping them

Fish I keep in general would be mostly Cichlids but I can't remember ever having a tank without some kind of Catfish in it aswell

I use to have a good few tanks on the go but nowadays I've just the one 480L and at the moment it's housing Tanganyikan Cichlids and of course 5-6 Ancistrus..........Before this I had a SA set up of the larger fish ie.Jack Dempsey,Oscar,Green Terror,Texas Cichlid etc. and before that I had Manacapuru Angels (they were stunners) and before that I had a large Tropheus colonly with a couple of Eel so I kind of jump continents regularly......Next might be Red Belly Piranha's but i'm saying this a while now so maybe not.....I kept 7 Sub-adult Piranha in the past but the set up was all wrong for them (got a chance to buy them cheap and I only had a 180L tank free but I stupidly bought them!!)......My worst mistake in fish keeping and it still bugs me so that's probably the main reason I want to keep them again!!

"Real" Angel's will always be my favorite though :)
