I recently bought a 250 gal tank for my pacu and am in the process of fixing to hook up. While looking for a tank I came accross these 2 cat looking fish that looked pretty beat up and needed rescuing. One has only one eye, the others nose is all scraped up. I thought I'd rescue them and put them in with Paco the Pacu as tank mates, seeing they were 15 inches long and the guy said they were 4 yrs old, I thought they must be fully grown. My paco already measures 17 in at 1 yr old.
Wow, they love paco and cling to him all the time, only thing is when one gets spooked all 3 dive in different directions. Paco's upset about the whole thing, he has'nt ate in 2days and has a bad inch scape on his gill.
I'm so upset with myself for not finding out what type of fish these are and jumping into this, but I really felt sorry for those fish.
Do you think they settle together or should I find homes for the catfish.
I've posted a question in Catfish to see if anyone can tell me what type they are. If you know about cats, please have a look.
