"I found your article on Black Pacu's very interesting though I disagree with many of your requirement for keeping Pacu's. I have had my two Black Pacu's for 21 years in a 170 aquarium. I do water changes (1/3) about every 3 to 4 months. Temperature in winter time is between 60 & 70 degrees. They are fed once a week (every Monday) using Koi pellets. If the water is not changed for 5 or 6 months the Pacu's will develop a white film over the eyes, etc. A quick water change resolves the problem. They have quit growing - size of aquarium? Probably. They swim mostly along the bottom of the tank which is covered with 1/2 inch of gravel. Joy to watch. Healthy to boot. Hope they do not live longer that 25 years. That is a lot of tank cleanings !!!!"
