Big Pacu HELP!
I just picked up four very very very large Pacu fish the biggest 1 is about 22 inches in length from tip to tip, the others are roughly between 12 and 15 inches long, I got them because the gentleman that have them before was getting rid of them for free and I have 150 gallon tank and I figured they would fit but there a little bit too big,
if I can come across a really bigfish tank I might keep them but right now I don't think they're too happy, is anyone interested in some very large fish? or what can I do with them or who can I call to maybe donate them150 gal. (1 black fin Pacu) Modified API Nexx modular filterX3+ a 1 litter bottle Moving Bed filter w/straws + DIY UFAS+ modified PowerHead to an aerated bacteria filter.
90 gal. (2 black fin Pacu) (1 red fin Pacu)Modified API modular nexx filterX3 + modified PwerHead to a biological aerated filter + 500gph aerated powerhead.

No need to fret
This thread has now been moved to the correct section of the forum
I hope you find a new home for those fish. Trillianne's advice is spot on and should help youIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

2nd what Trillianne said.
also, if you have a local zoo or a college near you-they may have some aquarium set up to handle big fish like this.
cant hurt to look into those options as well.
