The albino red belly pacu is a rare color morph of the red belly pacu found in the Amazon rivers of Colombia. What is interesting about ablino pacus, besides their pretty cream and pink color, is that fishermen find these fish schooling together. Generally albino fish are caught with schools of the standard color and separated by the fishermen. For whatever reason albino pacus seek to school with the same color and not mix with their parent red belly pacu.
Like the red belly pacu, this fish is a great pet fish and a companion to fish of similar size, but the pacu will eat smaller fish. Pacu prefer veggies but will eat anything.
