At the moment they are being fed on a selection of things. I'm quite lucky because I know a couple of game keepers and have access to a trout farm so they are getting a varied diet of bloodworm, algea wafers, trout, some lovely deer hearts that my game keeper friend gave me, sliced and frozen in portions same as the trout as I get given them live I get to prepare them I think is best for the piranha. I'm also in the process of starting to breed red cherry shrimp to give them something to actively hunt.
Your right about the fish shops, it's now illegal to sell any live vertebrate to be used as food by another animal. But the shrimps are invertebrates so no problem there
