yes, but i would wait until they are at least 10 inches before starting. Before that, keep them on fish flakes and vedgies.

Can a pacu eat shrimp?

Pacu are primarily vegetarians. They can eat meat, however it is not necessarily good for them. Meat from mammals is high in fat, and is more difficult for the pacu to digest. It also is less nutritious for them than vegetables, fruit or fish food. Shrimp is perfectly fine for a pacu to eat, however I would not turn it into his primary diet. I feed mine algae wafers, and the occasional peas, lettuce, and carrots. Mine also eats some of the regular fish flakes that I feed the other community fish in the tank with him.

Will adult red belly pacu fight adult Oscars?

Actually the Oscar won't fight. I had a red-belled pacu in a tank with an Oscar and I came home one day and the pacu had eaten the Oscar and a kissing fish and a parrot fish. They aren't suppose to eat fish their size but I think mine taps more into the nature of his piranha cousins than most. If you get both just be careful and make sure the Oscar is bigger and dominant. On the contrary every Oscar and every pacu has different personalities. Some will fight some will not. I have an Oscar in a 1500 gallon tank that hates pacu. And I've got a pacu that hates Oscars... So you never know...
