Don’t see them getting along or lasting. Would try separating or giving away the fish if you plant to keep the piranha.

I mean the pirhana never attacked the other pleco or anything else in that matter but im just concerned about the fins on the angel fin pleco. Btw its only 1 pirhana.

It may not be today, next week or even next year but at some point the piranha will eat the pleco....
My dude he's been with another pleco for a year now never showed aggressive behavior AT ALL im not worried about the pirhana im worried about the bucktooth tetra nipping fin but the pleco is bigger than the tetra. Also the pirhana is well fed and never ate live food. Sorry that i got defensive there.

do a big water change rearrange any decor in the tank and add the pleco. give the pleco a cave or other hiding spot and give it a shot.

No problem, I've kept Pirhana for 35+ years and I've tried almost everything with them from plecos to electric eels nothing lived some lasted for a while maybe a year or two but eventually ghost. I wish you all the best hopefully you prove me wrong....

Yeah every pirhana is different in their actions and thoughts nice to see people care about them still.
