    That is not something I would try. You do not have the footprint to get away with it. 55's are just too narrow. You may be able to do that in a 75.

    I agree. 75s have a 50% larger footprint than a 55.

    A pacu belongs in a pond.
    Hey, no disagreement from me here because in a 125 everyone has room enough to stake out their own territories. But, I think we're talking about a 55 gallon tank here.

    LOL..the pacu would depend on the species and the local climate. I've seen black pacus (2) kept in a 300 gallon tank before as well as reds\browns kept in their own 55. And I was using the pacu as an extreme example to illustrate a point.

    When in doubt, do a water change.
