Like the fish, not a fan of his tank mates.
They are food, I take it. But Mat says the piraiba stopped taking live feeders and are content with pellets. IDK if this still holds true.

Thank you

Indeed, just like thebiggerthebetter thebiggerthebetter said, it is food. There's a shop here have the best quality feeder fish. I did stop feeding him feeders but this is the first time for the past few months I gave him, as a treat. Usually I only bought Chinese Shiners but bought the goldfish to act as tank cleaners. Food & clean, win win.

This one is the Suriname, I didn't trained him to take pellets. Much easier, cheaper & healthier for him to take market fish.
