Yeah that's cool! I do like the young ones though. Never seen an older wild one so can't comment on that.

Here is a good looking larger Ornate I saw on Youtube, I'm assuming it's WC due to the patterns, the CB typically have less pattern. Either way it's a beast and absolutely stunning.

Per that video he says it was around 18.5", not the biggest Ornate out there but definitely large. So I imagine that was a 6ft tank, I'm guessing a 180.

Hey seaweed, they aren't pacus but they are part of the charicidae family so they're related

I had 2 pacos when I was a kid they had almost the same markings , they always were mistook for Parana by my friends
even though there vegetarian , but they got huge out grew a 125g tank fairly fast
pet store had me give them $30. for them to rehome them and that was over 30 years ago
