Thanks so much! I have another question! About feeding! I'm currently feeding shrimp pellets, crickets and the odd goldfish but they are mostly eating pellets. What some foods that will keep them super healthy? I know goldfish aren't the best so I want to stay away from those.
Got a picture of them on my profile if your interested!!

As far as the underground filter I dont think that counts much for filtration. HOB and canisters are a matter of preference. I have both kinds and while the canisters are pretty silent I think I actually prefer the HOB for ease of maintenance and cleaning.but thats just me! So youve had exodon tetra before? They arent normal everyday tetra. Theyre very aggressive and actually have sharp pirahna like teeth on the outside of their mouth!!! They stay smaller so they dont require such a big tank as your RBs

Pellets if theyre high quality are fine for piranha. You could occasionally feed frozen food juat for variety. Theres an online forum called piranhafury with a ton of info

I didn't have the buck toothed tetras! I had red serpae.i have seen videos and they are very cool but I am attached to my rbs! I am very willing to upgrade I just wanted to know when. And have tons of questions about them just very eager to learn and I want them to be healthy and live long so I want to give them the best I can!

I like to hear that! High grade pellets with the occasional goldfish/ lizard for treat. I suggest running *both* a canister and hob. Ask away on questions . I would start buying stuff for a upgrade like filters, heaters, stand, decorations, ect.

I agree. Under gravels are not good IMO. Your RBs look healthy and very colorful. Those are great signs. Can you post a full tank shot?

Happy to hear my diet for them is good should I run two filters in the 37g as well? And would it be best when I upgrade to start a brand new cycle? I forgot to mention this piranha aquarium is also my first aquarium!

Wow, we'll so far sounds like your doing it right. What your current filter? On the new tank, run the old filter on it. You might get a mini cycle, but live plants help and so do water changes.

Yep, real beauties. I'm happy your able to upgrade, soon that length of that tank won't be enough When they grow a few more inches.
