This past weekend I bought a 10" pacu and put him in with my rhom, just to make him feel more at home. The pacu immediately tryed to shoal with the rhom, he kept pushing my rhom into the glass. After about 30 seconds of this the rhom snapped. he bolted across the tank a few times and began attacking the glass, than he turned and took the pacus tailfin completely off. After watching him hunt the pacu for a bit I went out. I awoke the next morning to find half the pacu. I don't do this all the time, but I feel it's good for the piranha to hunt big prey just like how they would in the Amazon.

I bought him for 14.99, pretty expensive feeder, but it's only once in awhile. I don't think the price was that bad though.

Sorry guys, I got to get my hands on a camera for next time, and if I do you'll see it, guarenteed! My rhom has it pretty good though, I have some wood that emits a dye full of minerals into the water, making it black water, it's like I got a little bit of the amazon in my basement. Same with the caribe tank.

Hey Rhom. I'm getting a 75 and I'm going to get 4 4inch caribe. Do you like your caribe? What is up with this wood that emits dye minerals into the water. Is it just bogwood? How does it look?
