The Red-Bellied Piranha Pillow


The red-bellied piranha (Pygocentrus nattereri) is an iconic freshwater predatory fish and considered the most dangerous of the piranha family. It is native to South America in the river systems of the Amazon, Parana and Essequibo. It is a very attractive aquarium fish and likes the company of other piranhas, though this can be problematic when keeping piranhas with other fish species due to their aggressive nature. Piranhas require a relatively large tank with room to swim and fresh, or ideally, live food.
