My freind wanted to get rid of his 2 pacus a few years back so i took them. they are about 4 years and in good health they havent grown a bit. right now they are the size of my palm, but theyve been the same size since i got them. i know they grow huge, but when is that gonna start happening? also my gar has dissapeared. thought he jumped but found nothing. could the pacus have eaten him or my catfish

How many gallons are your tank and your friend's tank? Unfortunately, I would imagine that the pacus were previously stunted from being kept in a small tank.
Also, what kind of catfish are you talking about? The pacus wouldnt have eaten the gar as they're primarily vegetarian.

I really don't see that happening after so much time. That's good news, as so many people I know encounter huge pacu problems only after a few months.
Could have very well been the pacus that ate you others.
The calming qualities of a good aquarium are irrefutable

I doubt the Pacus would eat a gar, it doesn't seem like something I've heard of them doing. Pacus are normally vegetarians, but in captivity have been known to go after small prey. A catfish is a very likely predator of another large fish, even fish that are of equal length. The catfish would've gotten really fat right after, if the gar was large enough. By your desc
Your pacus are stunted. On the other hand, they probably aren't growing much bigger in these conditions.
The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian.
