That too! But I have noticed they are legal in warm states that have few waterways. I'm pretty sure they are legal in Arizona and Nevada. So that was the conclusion I drew when I saw the list of legal states. So it's probably a combination of the two. It's one reason I'm not too fond of living in Louisiana though. I've wanted piranhas since I was a kid.

Yeah but an awesome replacement for piranhas are Exodon Tetras. They are awesome to watch. If you haven't seen them you guys should look them up on YouTube. Red Wolf Fish are good too.

Hex. Aquarium w/ Fish & stand
If I'm reading that right, they are selling a breading basket with their fish tank. Apparently they really enjoy getting majorly sick from eating their pet fish as fish sticks.

Lol that's hilarious, I wonder if they threw that in there as a bad joke. I have a friend who stupidly ate his wife's Dempsey and a common pleco and was sick for a week.

Why would it make you sick? Wouldn't eating a Dempsey be like any other bass from a lake?

If I remember correctly, his wife was being a huge jerk to him so this is his idea of revenge. Idk, they obviously weren't the most stable of people lol

On almost every bottle of water conditioner I have seen, it says "Do not use if fish are intended for human consumption." There is something in it that apparently makes us sick........
