    Default 10lb Pacu fish for sale or trade

    We have a wonderful Pacu fish that is in a tank that is way too small...He is approx. 21 inches long and weighs around 10pounds!! He is living with all kinds of other fish and appears very friendly... He doesnt seem to be aggressive at all. We call him Bubba and he is over 8 years old. We got him when we bought a used tank with him as a package deal, but he is just way too big and needs more room. He has reddish/copper color in the tail and under belly fins and the rest is grey. Bubba just needs more space and someone to give him a good home... Please contact us if you are interested and we can set up a time for you to come and meet him... Willing to trade for aquariums, supplies or accessories.. Give us a call and we can make a deal....Ask for Mark or Megan [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] go to this web site to see pics i do not know how to post them on here tx

    ya he came in a 75 gallon tank and thats what hes in now...poor guy....he seems happy though, just needs more room. He loves my girlfriend...she sits and talks to him and he swims right by her..he loves when she puts her hands in the tank and loves we she gently pets him, but not too much as to hurt his slime coat [img]/ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] hes like a dog that swims lol

    Wow your right, I was just looking up some info on him and ideally he should be in a 450 gallon tank. I have a big tank and I know people who have big tanks, just not 450 gallons. I hope you can find this guy a proper home.

    Please whatever you do, even if you have to give him away for free, dont let that fish go in our lakes, not sayiing that you would but there has been many releases in our lakes and it is not good.

    oh i know ...he needs lots of room.... and we sure dont plan on lettin him go in the lakes... we really dont want to hurt him even though he may be hurting in the small tank....but thats what hes been in for his entire 8+ years.... we just want him to have a good home even if we have to give him away for free... if someone has a huge tank and will take care of him thats all we ask... i just wish we could afford a giant tank ourselves...

    that is one big fishy, im surprised no dentist offices or doctors offices with huge tanks hasn't jumped all over this fish. If he is put in a bigger tank will he get bigger?
