Please keep on topic. There was a CL insanity thread that was shut down because we got out of hand on it. And NO I'm not looking to buy.

To me, it looks lol some guy went out and caught wild piranhas and now wants to sell them. Some states you need a permit and other states its flat out illegal to own, sell, transport etc.

Plus how do we know there really wild and does he have a permit as well... Looks like trouble to me.

Trust me from someone who specializes in wild caught fish, without documention and a specific collection site ninety eight out of one hundreds cases are fake and the seller is simply using the term wild caught or F1 to increase their profits.

I'm pretty sure the seller is sketchy. Here in Nebraska it's legal to keep these fish and LFS get them in regularly. It's just one of those ads that make you shake your head. Also not buying into the whole 'wild caught' thing.
