CL -

Yes, you can put them in a tank with other fish of a less aggressive variety (cichlids and other mean fish will chew the hell out of them unless the pacu has a clear size advantage). But you can't really put ANY species of fish in with significantly smaller (read: bite-sized) fish and expect the little guys to last long unless you feed them well.

Hey, I was just at a butterfly park today and they had Pacu.
Has others have mentioned, anyone with a 200 gallon fish tank can own Pacu. They are pretty docile.

Well, there may be Pacu in the amazon, but there sure ain't any more in the Parana, which is the river that passes where I sued to live.

It was about 4000km away from the amazon, in another country, you know.

And pacu is gowingly scarce in the amazon, as well :-(

Should'a never referred to the child as "CHUM" within earshot of the fishtank.
