    Probably a bacterial bloom... Add some rocks or plants or switch filter media from another tank to jumpstart your cycle & check your ammonia & nitrites..

    You may have to do a water change...

    I think cichgirl is right. That out to take care of it.
    Do you realize that when that pacu is grown, he will need at least 200g? They'll need to get out of that 10 in about a month or two if they grow like they should. Be ready and good luck!
