    How big is your pond and what type of pacus are they?

    I'm asking how big should be so my dad could make it lol. (It's not yet built)

    Its 8 Red Belly pacus and a yellow belly pacu.

    Since the red bellies get 2 feet long, the tank should be at least 120 inches long by 36 inches wide by 36 inches tall. Yellow bellies get a little smaller.

    When it rains..... water is really acidic and devoid of TDS.
