    I Finally Caught It On Video!!!

    Firstly, sorry for the dirty acrylic. Feedings are wet and wild over here and I didn’t expect my Tat to be so bold today. For the past few weeks I’ve seen what I thought was my Tat taking bites of food (mainly shrimp) from the corner of my eye. Once or twice during my pellet feedings I could...

    Anyone ever keep two different species of payara together successfully? Armatus and tats specifically. If so, were they the same size, and how many fid you keep together?

    Hey everyone, thinking of getting a baby payara, choices are a 7cm Armatus for 50 usd or 12cm tatuia for 70 usd. Which leads to the question, which would you guys recommend taking? Whats the major differences? The pluses and minuses? Thanks in advance :)

    Payara ID Help?

    I recently picked up this bold little guy from my LFS, and he's doing very well with my other fish - there's only one problem: I don't know if he'll grow out of my tank or not. I'm hoping he isn't an Armatus, and I'm hoping for the Scomb... Any help with the IDing of my new carnivorous friend...

    22" armatus

    So it's been quite some time since I've posted in this section as you all may know. I adopted this armatus approximately right after the death of my gatf. This is the stand in to fill the void of a giant monster. This one is an alpha of the original trio my friend kept from young juveniles.
