YES and NO
sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not
there have been people who have managed this before with no probs
although I have seen it gone bad before at the LFS.
chances are better though if adding them while smaller
...you must remember that these pacus will get 1 meter plus

You can add most fishes such as Pacus, Oscars, Cichlids, Exodons, some Cat Fishes to a Piranha tank. The rule I go with is to always introduce them to an early stage when juveniles, mostly having the other fish a little bigger than the Ps. Its possible (seen, heard and have done it before), but the one thing you have to remember.. the bigger the fishes get, the bigger appetite.

they get big, very big
1 meter plus, and they are the same basic shape as a RBP, rounded
