I'm sorry but that's insane I do 50 % changes on my 125 that holds 2 severums 7"and 5" and probly not more then 10 other 3inch fish I cant see how your pacu is happy in a 55 he needs 230 plus and ,40 % every 9 days at the least depending on what you feed

Agree. Far too small a tank, far too infrequent water changes, and far too insufficient a filtration system to keep up with the bioload of an 11" Pacu. It needs a huge tank with massive amounts of filtration.
