well its not doing fine, 5 gallon tanks barely fit a betta happily, how can it fit a red belly pacu that should grow to 30 inches in the wild, it is probable living a very unfortunate life and if i was that pacu, i would kill myself in a tank that small. It is very irresponsible of the owner, i hope you dont do it

no it wont fit, it will grow until it takes up the whole space and the growth will be stunted, the organs will grow but the bone structure wont since there isnt enough space, so the organs will start bulging out, i think thats what stunted growth means, correct me if im wrong

They are slow growers but that doesnt give them the right to put it in 5 gallons
