    Its been awhile since ive been on auspet(work and familey) so i thought id give you guys an update on my fishes.

    Well the sad news first, i lost one of my monster pacus, i came out one morning and he was on the floor all dried up and long passed away :(
    he jumped out in the night, im not sure how because he was almost 20" long.
    I weighed him before i burried him and he was just over 7LBS!!!! and was the smaller of the two!!!!! so his surviving roomate is prolly way over that.

    On a happier note my flowerhorn that i got as a 2" fry , is now around 8"
    and living alone in his own 75gal sand tank. Now that he is big i have succesfully determined that he is Male, so i will be ordering a pretty little female for him soon, to attempt to get them breeding.

    All my Oscars are well and growing like weeds, i still have 5 of them and was told by my wife im not allowed to adopt any more. although there is a pair of reds at the LFS that some one returned......

    heres some pics of my Flowerhorn:



    well thats whats new, i'll post more when i get em, and be around for while .

    Poor pacu, samething happened to my sword, but i dunno if he jumped or got swiped by a cat. that would be weird to wake up and see a 18" fish on the ground, And hey whats the minimum tank size for pacu, i was thinking of going 120 in a few years with a pacu, oscar, red devil and some other fish that i cant spell,

    120 isn't even going to be close. A single pacu would need closer to 300 gallons, but they're social fish and do best in groups so to keep 3 you'd need about 1000 gallons.

    I also wouldn't put a red devil and an oscar in a 120 simply because of how extremely aggressive red devils are.
