    My guess is 9 inch. Hard to get him to sit straight. I got him from a not so local fish store I use 11 months ago. He was about 4 inches then. They had him given from a guy who got some pacu direct from South America they were all about 1cm I was told. He was raised as a Pacu. Then he grew and started going for Dominance. He savaged two so the guy freaked out and got rid. Apparently he had him a little over 4 months. So my guess is a little over 18 months.

    He is . Put em in a large tank alone and they grow really fast. Moving lil Doris my other red belly today to a bigger tank. People tend to forget these fish can grow to a foot if looked after and housed properly. Boris is still growing. Although his growth has slowed somewhat. Plan to build him a bigger tank.

    I stand corrected I sort of managed to measure him. More like 7 3/4 inch. That bow front does make it tricky to guess lol.

    You were close enough. It is basically just an inch difference.
