    I like the idea of having Piranhas that will attack players, but they should not be able to jump out of that water (they can't do that in real life wit h out hurting themselves) and would have to come in packs, so they should not be able to deal any more then 3 hearts/2armor points of damage. And they should not have any more armor that they can deal.

    I think they should only attack you if you are below half health or something. Piranhas only attack a human if said human is bleeding in the water.

    That’s a little to much damage. Maybe just 1/2-1 heart of damage. And they just spawn in jungles

    Don't have them jump out of the water.

    reduce the damage to 1 HP on easy mode, 2 on normal, and 3 on hard.

    Make them only spawn in Jungle rivers and lakes in groups of 5-8.

    and make them the same size as large tropical fish.

    If the piranha bit you with other piranhas in the water, they would smell blood like sharks and swarm you.

    I think piranhas should only spawn in rivers, since in real life you don't find them in oceans. They should be in rivers in savannahs, jungles, and deserts, since they are usually found in warm places. That way, it wouldn't be dangerous to go in the water all the time.

    I think it's a good idea.
    However, piranhas are actually timid fish and will not normally attack aggressively.
    Usually, they act in groups of about 5 animals.
    However, piranhas can see how much damage the mobs and players are doing.
    Therefore, if you find a mob and a player with less than half the health, the piranha will immediately attack in a group.
    Then, by defeating the piranha, you can drop the "raw piranha" and bake it to eat it as a "roasted piranha".

    Now that we have the Mangroves, the Piranhas could fit in there easily

    I think this is a great Idea and maybe make them so they swim away from any light source like a torch etc, so that the players DO have a chance of warding them off but still have that natural sense of danger!

    Fun fact: real piranhas aren't actually hostile to humans. They rarely attack humans unless threatened and attacks are almost never fatal. The media has given people the wrong idea.
