    My little Pacu...the smaller pacu killed the betta! he just ripped apart the fish, I stuck my hand in the water to make it drop it, he did, but the betta was a pile of sawdust by then... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    well, this is how I feed him,
    The larger pacu always eats the little pacus food. (algea chips) so I just started to feed him a new way about two weeks ago... I take a huge pinchful of fish flakes and wet it, then I compact it into a 1" x 1" ball. 3 in the morning, 3 at night. alot of the flakes are red,
    (or look red) especially when compacted. they sink when compacted, so I distract the big pacu with algea chips while I drop the compacted balls in. they sing pretty fast.

    you see, the betta whas out of his "little tank in a big tank" and he can leave and come in when he wants to. right during feeding, the betta darted down really fast, in front of the little pacu. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] the little pacu ripped him apart. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] It was sad to see it die, helpless in the little pacus mouth, trying to squirm free. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] usually I enjoy watching fish prey on smaller fish, but this was different. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] and the worst part, all that was left was the head, sinking to the bottom of the tank. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] I went to tell my parents, came back, and it was gone. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Thumbs down

    yeah, it sucks, Really sucks.
    Because
    I have many small fish in there that my pacus could eat. pacus are vegetarians. why would one eat a betta? *shudder* I liked that betta, my mother loved it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] My parents now think the pacus are a threat to my other fish because they might eat all of them. and the worst part... my parents think the larger pacu did it, but I saw it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] It was the little pacu, I know it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] but the best part... My parents now realize how large the pacus are, and how large they will/can get, so they are getting a 55 gal. fish tank for them! at least for christmas...
    what should I do till then?

    thats very sad but you should have learned one thing , bettas are commonity fish with other tropical fish such as corydorias , angels , and gouramis and pacu are communtiy fish with arowanas , silver dollars , cichlids and clown knives . I had fish die many time , i had 5 arowanas that were full grown that cost 100 dolars each and that was very sad [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
