  1. Default Fertilized red pacu eggs

    Is it possible to order and have shipped fertilized red pacu eggs and if so where would I order from? If so, do you just acclimate the eggs to the aquarium water for them to hatch?

    Theoretically it should be possible I suppose. Still going to be shaky. Too hot or too cold in transfer and you'd look at infertile eggs.

    I sincerely hope you know what you're letting yourself in for with these fish. To quote seriously fish:

    at least 120″ x 36″ x 36 (300cm x 90cm x 90cm) 2550 litres, preferably larger

    I've never heard of someone shipping eggs. not to say it can't be done, but you'd have much better luck looking for fry which are already hatched and much safer to ship I'd think.

    From what I've read about them, they do not breed in captivity. Only eggs I've heard of being shipped are rainbow eggs within a breeding mop. I'm sure there are other mop breeders but that wouldn't be pacu's that squatter their eggs.

    Fertilized red pacu eggs hatch within a day.
    So, even if that's what you ordered, that isn't what will arrive. ;-)

    This will be my find, join, and support your local or not so local fish club pitch.
    Someone there will know or be able to put you in touch with someone who can at least point you at a breeder.
