LOL...no she isn't and neither are ANY of us.
that's like me saying you would be better off in a 6x9 cell eating a limited and boring diet.
Personally I find piranha's to be rather boring unless in a large, 12+, group in a huge tank, then you actually begin to see some natural behaviors. One or two in 3 or 4 foot long tank will NEVER behave naturally.
I had a friend who had 16 of them in a 200 gallon tank with a 36" silver arowanna and they behaved a lot differently, very aggressive and not shy in the least.
He used to treat them with feeder rats every couple of months, very messy, but carnage like in the movies.
