I have always wanted Panda Uaru and finally thanks to Charles at Canadian Aquatics I have them. I picked up 10 of them along with 2 Blue Panaque. 2 Royal and 4 Vampire Plecos.

I will update this thread from time to time with how they are doing.

They are in a 75G for now but will eventually go into the 210G as the centre piece.

Here are some early pics.

They are very cool fish. I got some from Charles years ago and they grew huge. Lived very peacefully with discus

Very envious - have always wanted these!!! Good luck with keeping them. Keep the thread updated - I would be interested to see how they eventually do in the 210

Sorry for the late reply but I was moving fish around so i thought I would wit until I was done.

The Uaru's are now in a 210G with 11 Geo Winemilleri's, 15 Clown Loaches and 9 Denisoni's.

They range from 4-5" and are starting to show their adult colouring.

Here is a quick vid....

nice. I guess the Geos help with the gravel! Hopefully you get some uaru spawns eventually - put me on the list for fry!

Panda Uarus Updated Aug 11 2018

Just a 3 month update....The tank was too full so the Clown Loaches, and the Geos were moved out. I added some bristlenose plecos and 6 Petricolas.
Here is a new vid....you can see the colours on some changing to white.

Looking great ... what air stones do you use? That’s pretty impressive air / surface agitation.

I use 2 4 inch disks connected to a huge air pump that runs all my tanks. The best part of these disks is that they have brass 90 degree connectors which make it super easy for airline connection.
