We have stocked with three different groups of Tambaqui. When I first stocked them it was only a few fish, but they put on weight quickly and proved to be a good fighting fish so I got some more the next year and again the following year.

We have a good head of Tambaqui in the lake, but are not the easiest fish to catch…  even though they are sort of omnivorous here, being caught on everything from chicken hearts, to pellets, to pieces of Mackerel; although in the wild they are supposedly vegetarian.
