They're not illegal everywhere. Pretty much every LFS by me sells them. All diff sizes. I had 3 for almost 10 years. Very boring fish tho. I like my African cichlids a lot more.

Yea I've moved mine twice now. One time was up a steep flight of stairs. Probably the worst thing I have to move. Such an ordeal.

The funny thing is that absolutly no pet store sells it so it wouldn't make sense for my store to sell it.
