The lfs i shop at most has a 720 gallon that they used to use for pacu/catfish return tank. It had a whole bunch of them and now they changed it to be a display tank but will still take your fish and they always have new pacus. I don't think i've been in there when they didn't have 2 or 3 and there always changing out. I used to get them for cheep and use them as food. Figured this was a better fate then dieing a slow death sitting 3 wide in a 30 gallon tank.

I agree with you on that, Gump.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I cannot say much because i bought a clown knife on a whim but got rid of it when it would still fit in most sale tanks but it gets me made 2 days ago i found a 10+ inch tinfoil barb that a pet shop had taken in. These are warm water tropical fish right well they had it in a koi pond and was the biggest thing in it. A COLD WATER koi pond and that pissed me off so much i got for a tank i did not need it for but it made a nice addition. But the price was good $6.38 for this giant tinfoil barb. :)
