Juvenile piranha behavior?

Hello! I just got some new red belly juvenile piranhas! They're about 2 inches right now

Iv been trying to feed them frozen raw shrimp from the grocery store.

What I do is dethaw the shrimp completely, and string it through a plastic string, and dangle it in the tank.

Almost instantly they swim after the shrimp and start taking bites out of it. They don't for very long though

They'll start taking bites out of the shrimp for a minute or so then they all just swim and and become uninterested in the shrimp. Is this normal? Are they eating enough?

Piranhas are very skittish fish unless in big groups (5 or more) so i would say yes, normal.
