It won't make it through the winter, especially not if we have winters like the last one ... unless they find an area where the water is kept
They tested it on piranha in River Monsters to see if they could winter over in Lake of the Ozarks, and they couldn't.
But yes, the simple lesson is to never, ever buy that cute little fish for your fish tank without knowing what exactly it is and how big it will get.
Pacu are commonly sold in just about every store because they're cute when they're little, but they get big fast. They're just one of several tank
busters that shouldn't ever be offered for sale in stores that routinely are.
Just never, ever buy fish for your aquarium without doing research first. People think if one lives for a year it's had a ripe old life, but honestly
most fish ought to live for at least two to three years and more commonly five, 10 and sometimes as long as 15 or more depending on what they are. The
sad truth is that most aquarium fish are doomed to a nasty, brutish and short life because the people who buy just don't know.
