    Just came across this video of an amazing fish (in a messed up situation) that has overcome the odds, so to speak. Check it out... and if you're sqeamish about feeders, skip it.

    I'm not going to comment on the feeder fish (because I hate it), but that tank looks a bit tight for that pacu. He must have a hell of a filtration system to deal with the amount of waste it produces?

    It looks like Buttkiss has been in prison for some years. He can barely turn around in there.

    It just amazes me that the poor fishes tank is in adequate, its diet is improper, and yet its 44 years old. Nature truely adapts!

    I read that the owner stated he feared that changing the tank for a bigger one may stress the old guy, but why not do it 30 years ago when it wasn't so old? And as an aquarium shop owner, what's his excuse for feeders. He should know about the dietary requirements of every fish he sells. Pacu aren't carnivours! Imagine the advice novice shoppers get at that store!

    They are omnivores aren't they? Basically, they'd eat a bag of chips if you threw them in there. The bears of the fishworld.

    They are omnivores, although in their natural habitat, their nutrition comes mainly from seeds and nuts that drop into the water.

    Depending on where they are from.

    They were introduced into many rivers around the world in the 50s and 60s as a peaceful food fish for native humans, and in several of them, they have become nearly entirely carnivores. Quite prolific, as well, displacing the majority of native species.

    Once again, nature evolves...

    Terrible tank and diet for a pacu. I'd take the 43 year old part with a pinch of salt. I've seen pacu that are much bigger and a lot younger.
