    Monster Fish - Pacu

    in Pets

    On Friday September 14th 2012 - 10 PM EST, 9 PM CST, 7 PM PST
    An interesting monster fish episode will be on the Under The Sea Radio Show discussing very close relatives to the Piranha which are known in the industry as Pacu. The term Pacu is a term of Brazilian Indian origin. When the large fishes of the Colossoma genus entered the aquarium trade in the U.S. and other countries, they were erroneously labeled pacu. In the Amazon, the term pacu is reserved to smaller and medium sized fishes in the Metynnis, Mylossoma and Myleus genera. The Colossoma macropomum fish are known as tambaqui, whereas Piaractus brachypomus is known as pirapitinga.

    Aquatic Wetline Special: Monster Fish Hour: River Giants Rehoming Sanctuary!

    in Pets

    On this special episode of the Aquatic Wetline, Aqua Alex and CrayfishmanJames are very happy to support a good cause. We are going to be supporting a movement in the United Kingdom called the River Giants Rehoming  Sanctuary which is a Monster Fish rehoming facitilly.River Giants rehomes Monster fish in too small of a tank to very large aquariums! The owner of the facitully will be on the show to discuss everything it does and the species they take in. If you have questions, call 347-989-8142!

    About River Giants:

    River Giants are a new, unique and specialist re-homing sanctuary based in Maidstone in Kent. We re-home some amazing, wonderful fish that span the globe.There's something primal that leads people to wonder what's lurking below the surface of any large river. Humans seem to be hardwired to be both fascinated by, and somewhat fearful of, Volkswagen-sized catfish.

    There’s something in the back of everyone’s mind when overlooking a large river, lake or bay. “What’s lurking below the surface?” Grainy images of the Loch Ness Monster feed those thoughts. 

    In the wild, these amazing animals live in remote locations from Australia’s Outback to the steamy jungles of southeast Asia.  You will be thrilled by the prehistoric-looking arapaima, weird-looking wallago, giant freshwater rays and other BIG fish.

    Our fish collection includes rare and exotic Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES for BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.
