Okay so i have had this fish for over a year now. Love it to death. But so far he has eaten countless fish. The lady at petsmart looked at me like I was crazy because there supposed to be herbivores. But so far he has eaten 2 tainted glass fish, a scissortail goldfish, a blue catfish, two betas (on seperate occasions i dont fight them so dont get concerned) and a whole school of 4 four small fish. So, all thats left in my tank is him, 1 glass fish, and my algae eater. Anybody else ever experience or hear about or killer pacu? is it really a pacu that i have? ill post pics up later. He does have teeth and does draw blood when you stick your finger in the tank lol

You really shoudnt be feeding your pacu fastfood. I mean its not good for people so why would it be good for a fish. Sounds like you are not going to be able to add anything to your tank unless its about the same size or bigger than your pacu. Good luck

dude dont play your dumbass-ness on being a college kid, im a sophmore and that is just stupidity on your part. If fastfood makes humans FAT and UNHEALTHY why do you think it would do any different to a fish?

No one is going answer how big the fish is because the guy probably left the site after being called retarted. If he was doing something wrong (which he was), just say "hey fast is good for your fish so feed it something else"

If is a very common notion for Pacus to be labeled as herbivores; however, to be correct they are omnivores. I used to have two Pacus that would eat any feeder that I put in the tank. Yes, all Pacus have teeth. They are large blunt teeth set in the back of their throats. If the fish is big enough, he will draw blood. Hell, I used to have a 12" Oscar that would draw blood if he bit your finger.

Aw well.
If only pacu's didn't grow to be so large I'd probably get a couple.

i have been lucky, my pacu is about 10 inches long an i have a glo-fish in the tank with him. he doesn't bother him at all. i do make sure the pacu doesnt go hungry though. i have been told by a bunch of people that the pacus will eat whatever they fit in there mouth.
