    I'm with Pyro: if you own a dangerous pet, you must be willing to face the eventual consequences. A rule I've often heard in venomous reptile keeping is "It's not if you'll get bitten, it's when." Everyone makes mistakes, and when working with a dangerous animals, those mistakes can have consequences. If you don't want to deal with the consequences, don't buy the animal.

    Uhmm you guys realize that The fish was in a net trying to jump out, and he was trying to keep it in with his hand, his mistake was putting the fish in a net, and not a bucket.

    I've kept Piranhas before.

    The one I had was very shy and I could clean the tank without removing him. He just went and hid in the corner. Maybe not the safest thing to do.

    Here's a link to some pics:
