It's not easy to find some descent sites about piranhas on the internet. On this page you find the ones I think are worth checking out: some are filled with information from a hobbyist point of view, others are based on scientific data, and yet others are discussion forums, picture-only websites, or contain information about ordering piranha's on-line: together they should give anyone interested enough information to keep piranha's in a responsible way.
This is by no means a complete list, so if you have built a good site or know one that is not listed below, let me know, and I will add it to this list. To do so, please fill in the feedback form.
Opefe / Oregon Piranha
Website filled to the rim with scientific information about all aspects of piranha's and their care in captivity, as well as desciptions and information about numberous other tropical fish species. Written by piranha expert Frank Magallanes, this site is the cream on the piranha pie.
The net's largest and most active discussion forum, created by Mike Baker and a dedicated team of volunteers, intended for piranha keepers of all walks of life and every nationality. Although the name may suggest otherwise, it also includes extensive non-piranha and plant sections. Besides a forum, this website also contains an extensive information center featuring articles, tutorials and DIY instructions, as well as a very large image gallery.
Lively on-line community, created by Jeff Tan. Besides a discussion forum, not only about pleco's but also other (cat)fish, you will find a large image gallery, containing hundreds of excellent pictures.
Very informative website about all things catfish, created by Scottish catfish enthousiast (and expert) Allan James. Scotcat.com includes species profiles, journals, a large image gallery, articles, a web forum and many more.
The world's most famous catfish website, and with good reason. Created and maintained by Julian G. Dignall aka. Jools: if you are into catfish, that's all you need to know. Besides a lively discussion forum, it contains profiles of hundreds of catfish species, numberous articles, etc. etc. - too much to mention, so check it out yourself!
