I'm thinking about getting a piranha and I'm looking for a round fish tank. Somebody told me if I got a regular rectangular tank the fish could build up enough power to burst through the glass and have a go at my pets.

Is this a wind up? In case it isn't, i apologise, this sounds like an urban myth. It sounds ridiculous that a fish could break the glass (think how hard you can hit something when underwater). I would ask the shop where you intend to buy the fish from for advice. I doubt you could get a bowl big enough to keep a pirahna in healthily!

I'm new to the area and the website and press the wrong buttons sometimes and post my messages in duplicate. I don't see why young people can have macho dogs and not macho fish.

No one goes off on one and calls the police about giant leeks so whats the problem

I don't recall saying anything about whether you should have the fish or not. Just that i think someone is pulling your leg when they say that a pirahna can break the tank and then attack your pets. No, if you want to get one thats up to you but i doubt very much you can plonk it in a bowl and hope it survives like a goldfish does, i suspect it, like most tropical/exotic fish will need a filter, lighting, vegetation and maybe a water heater.
