    along with red tail cat, two plecos ( who looked tiny!) and some sort of short tail ray!

    what an experience that was!! to see pacu's in real life, the teeth, the size.... it was very cool.
    my son Is just fascinated with arapaima.... I don't know why - but I can see the fascination. the thing didn't look real- then it went up for air.... and later yawned!

    my son got to see them feed them... they didn't do live feeds but no one went hungry.
    I wish they had done nuts or berries for the pacu- they may on a different day.

    what amazing fish these were!!

    Good morning,

    My brother had Pacu in his 125g tank which was a big mistake. The fish out grew the tank to 26"s and could not turn around. I wish it were so that these fish were not sold in pet/fish stores for the home aquarium. Seeing them in a public aquarium, much better due to the space they are usually provided with.

    Glad you had fun!
