Pacu Eye Problem
I work in Petsmart and today I was helping a lady pick out some livebearers and when I look into a tank with sunburst platys, I find a small pacu. He is maybe 2 inches long and I thought it weird he was in a platy tank. I took him out only to find he is missing an eye. We put him in the "hospital tank" but I was wondering what can be done or if he could survive something like this.

My co-worker mentioned we might adopt him out to someone since he won't be sold with an eye missing. I have no space for him but it would be nice if we could get him healthy and adopt him out to someone.

I will let you know this. This fish gets real and I mean real big. They live over 40 plus years and they will need a real big aquarium. Like a pool.:BIGsurprise::BIGsurprise::BIGsurprise::BIGsu rprise:
