Summary

Summary

Contrary to their undeserved reputation, piranhas are shy, nervous fish that frighten easily. This book enlightens aquarium enthusiasts on details of the piranha's native habitats, behavior, anatomy and sensory systems, and gives practical advice on keeping these fascinating creatures. There is information on selecting and transporting healthy piranhas to the home aquarium, maintaining aquarium filtration and heating, feeding the fish and protecting them against bacterial, fungal, and parasitic hazards, and breeding and raising young piranhas.
