    hey, i was just wondering if anybody could help me out with a lil prob. i have had three rbp's for about three years now, they are now about 4 and a half inches and i have just purchased a new 75 gallon tank. i know this is a stupid question, but i recently tried growing 9 more rbp's up in my old tank......i kept them in there for about a year, and then when they were about 3 and a half inches, i tried to mix them, needless to say, this failed miserably. over the course of about three months, all my younger pirana's, except one, who was the pick of the litter, ceased to exist...is there any way that i could add to my schools size??? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    yes, actually i ahve added 2 piranhas with my original one. i wouls suggest gettin a tank divider and keeping the news ones on one side for a week or so, so they get used 2 eachother. then when you are going to remove the divider, redecorate the tank so they ALL have 2 establish their own territories.

    With any type of moderately large and aggressive fish, it is difficult to add fishes to an already existing tank. You could be jeopardizing the health of all your fishes by doing so. It's best to try and insure that you are adding fishes that are about the same size to your tank.
    I don't think I would keep any more rbp's in a 75 gallon tank. You are facing an issue of tank size and not number of fish. Be careful!
