Breeding Pacus

Hi,

This gonna be my first time i ever EVER breeding something massive and i know many people doesnt do this much.
So i have 25 pacus in my 52 gallon large cubic tank (dont tell im crazy, i know what to do when they are massive) how to tell the sex of male and female? What if yellow belly? I need the steps and requirement, my dad really is intrested in breeding pacus when they are adult, they will have home later ^^ right now my pacus are still like 6-10 cm and are in shape like piranhas with my silver dollars. Pls, i would be really happy if anyone can help!

Gilbert

Usually I would vent them
o
o = male

o
O = female

Grab a few and try it out but don't hold too tight.

I do agree with hening though you need a huge tank for even one, I went to the fish store last week and they had a pacu someone dropped off in a lower holding tank ( way too small) and they were trying to give it away for free! It had to have been a foot and a half long and foot tall!
