    A foot 6 tank eh. What type of P's? Red bellys im guess so those things can get over 12" long my guess is 6ish in a 6 foot tank maybe more im no piranha expert. For food you could use beef heart at a treat my friends is a on steady diet of beef heart and some other stuff.

    Hi zezo, Welcome to Auspet. I'm no expert on Piranha by any means, but I'll give you what information I have gotten on Red Belly Piranhas. First, I am guessing that your tank is 125 gallons since it is 6 feet long. Ten RBPs are just a little too many for 125 gallons. You should have only 6 RBPs maximum in that size tank. From what I have read temperature seems to be the key triggering factor. Raise the tank temperature to 84 degrees and then gradually lower it back to 78 to 80 degrees. I'm guessing that this simulates the water temperature shifts during spawning season in their native waters. Good luck.
