Do you know of any smaller pacu alternatives? Looking for something other than a silver dollar.

Thats not an pacu but an relative to the thinbar, thickbar and red hook silverdollar. Its in the same family. I think the real pacu family only consists of two species. Colossoma macropomum and colossoma brachypomum
