Photo Caption: This is Paco, my female red bellied pacu, carrying on her nightly laps in the tank. This picture makes her look small, but she's about 10-11 inches long. (Forgive the cloudiness, we're trying to resolve that at the moment)

Description: It's a 40 gallon breeder. It's long and wide, but not so tall. I think it's nice for my Pacu because she's quite large now and likes to hang out on the side but the 12 inch is to small for her. The 18 inch depth is good for now. It's long for her to do her swimming when she's comfortable. I think 36 inches or close?
Advice: Have fun! Don't be fooled about little baby pacu's in pet stores!! They grow REALLY fast and REALLY big requiring more than 100 gallons by the time they are full grown
Fish Kept: 2 year old female red bellied pacu. About 10 or 11 inches long. 5 month old jack dempsey. Just about 4 inches now.
Corals/Plants: Pacu and the Jack would eat the plants, so none.
Tank Size: 40 gallons
