30-Pound Piranha Outgrows Its Welcome
Tank Weighs More Than 2,000 Pounds

POSTED: 7:19 a.m. EDT June 3, 2002

OXFORD, Ohio -- Annette Buskirk has grown very attached to her pet fish.

Unfortunately, it's getting a bit big -- and has quite an appetite.

The Oxford, Ohio, woman is the proud owner of a 30-pound piranha named Pacu.

But the fish keeps on growing and eats three meals a day so Buskirk, who lives on Social Security, is trying to give it away. She's tried one aquarium, but it already has piranhas.

Pacu eats a wide variety of foods, including potatoes, broccoli, cantaloupe, liver, frogs and fish. Buskirk says, "It feels like I'm living with Jaws."

The piranha's tank dominates her living room, weighing more than 2,000 pounds with gravel and water. Link to story (http://www.newsnet5.com/news/1492218/detail.html)

That one's good AT eating, at least.

Just dump it at the old swimming hole.

The name says it all, that is actually a Pacu. They are not agressive like Piranhas are. They are from the same family and look damn near like one though.
