I have 3 very large pacu that have outgrown their tank. Any advice on what to do? Does anyone buy large fish? I have 6 aquariums but not a single one with room enough to seperate them. Thank you for your input.

Pacu get HUGE - they can get to be about 2 feet long, but some will even get to 30" long. Our LFS has some in a 500 gallon custom tank - easy enough for a store, but unless you've got some money to spend, hard for an individual. I hope someone warned you about the size and tank requirements when you bought them - usually they're pretty small when you get them. We almost bought a couple, but the LFS owner pointed out his large tank and asked if we were willing to have that in our home when the fish were grown. Needless to say, I don't have pacu.
If you can't get them a large tank, maybe you could find a fish store or public aquarium that can accomodate them. Good Luck!
