Up Keep: Similar to the Red-Bellied Piranha. Provide a nice open swimming space and use some floating plants to dim the lights.

Comments: Like the Red-Bellied Piranha, this fish is dangerous and may bite if it feels threatened. Use caution when cleaning the aquarium. They are not quite as aggressive as the Red-Bellied Piranha.
