Smile what size tank?

hi, I have a young red bellied piranha nearly 4 inches long, he is currently in a 2ft starter tank, but I obviously need to get a bigger tank set up to put him in so I was wondering what size tank you would recommend?
I was thinking about a 4ft tank but have been told a 3ft would do, any advice welcome

Hmmm......I would work on getting at least a 4 ft tank (55 gallon) and possibly a few more Piranha.
I used to have a school of Piranha (back in the early 90's) (125 gallon tank)and I think they do best in groups.

Just curious......where's shrewsbury?
