On this week's episode of Monster fish sound off here on Aquatics Euphoria, Alex will be discussing one of the most common Monster fish in the whole world and in the fish keeping Hobby, the pacu. The pacu is known as the world's biggest nut eater and will eat nuts in the wild. But the pacu is sold in most fish stores and people buy them because they look like piranhas and are much more peaceful.
Our topics for this show will be : General information on the pacu, Why you should avoid the pacu, the different kinds of pacus out there, tank size required for the pacu, care requirements, and much more!

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.

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.
