What and When To Feed Your Pet Piranha

What would it be a good idea for you to feed your pet piranhas?

To some that may appear glaringly evident, feed them anything right? Not quite. Much the same as people, you need to ensure that your piranhas eat a decent eating regimen to ensure they remain solid. Feeding them table scratches (which happens often) isn’t suggested.

Piranha feeding isn’t amazingly convoluted. The red midsection piranha for instance is a meat-eater, so meat-like items ought to be a tremendous piece of their eating regimen. But, you can’t simply feed them meat constantly. It’s essential to switch with different kinds of food. Here is a rundown of piranha foods that have worked for me before and other well-known recommendations that I found on various gatherings:

* Frozen fish/seafood like cod, salmon, fish, catfish, shrimps, krill, mussels and squid. You can purchase these in pre-made shapes that you keep in your cooler, or make your own.

* Pellet food, for example, Hikari Gold or Hikari Cichlid Bio-Gold.

* Small bits of vegetable like celery, cucumbers and peas (some incline toward the shell off, others on) can be a decent addition to their eating routine.

* Pinkie mice.

* Live feeders.

Significant – Please remember that there is a great deal of discussion around the last one. Numerous individuals accept that it is OK to feed live fish (minnows, tetras, and so on.) to piranhas, while others accept that you ought to never do it. The fundamental explanation is that live feeders are inclined to ailment which would then be able to be moved to your piranhas. One approach to help with this issue is to quarantine the live feeders in a different aquarium for half a month prior acquainting them with your piranhas. This won’t totally take out the danger of sicknesses, anyway it will help.

How often do I feed them?

This is a generally excellent inquiry. The general dependable guideline is that adolescent piranhas ought to be taken care of 2-3 times each day, while grown-up piranhas ought to be taken care of once every other day. It is energetically suggested that you tidy up the scraps 4-5 hours after you are done eating. In the event that you don’t, the food will decay and dirty the water, making your position at maintaining the aquarium that a lot harder. Doing this will ensure you aren’t continually doing water changes.

One more thing to remember is that when you initially get your piranhas, they may decline to eat. This is normal. Now and again they simply need a couple of days, even a week or something like that, to acclimate to their new condition. The equivalent goes while presenting new food.
