how can you tell
do you know how to tell pacus apart from male or female
generally males have brighter red coloration and the dorsal fin comes more to a point. Sometimes the anal fin will of the male will have more of a jagged edge too.
I know of know way to distinguish the sexes of pacus. Some say that there are differences in finnage or body shape. I have never heard anyone that knows for sure. My suggestion would be to watch them closely and see which restroom they use. lol :dunno:
This post is "off topic" and I know that you know this but I "just had to set my mind at ease".
Pacus can easily get over three feet in length.
I recently observed a pacu in a 1000G show tank and the pacu was well over two feet in length.
