I suppose for the same reason that channel catfish and common plecos are available... they sell. :/

They sell them pretending they are cleaners, but I just think they don't know you must have 100g+ tank to hold them on long term...

In my case I kept a Gyrino (CAE) for 1 years in a 10g with 10 tetra neons and he was only cleaning and hiding, no problems with it...

It's gone back, probably be in another 10g by tomorrow though, I started off all nice and friendly, I said I wanted to return the fish because it wasn't suitable for my mums tank, and that's where it all went down hill...

"If it wasn't suitable why did she purchase it?"

I saw red... But stayed calm explained that it was a member of staff that gave her the advice but after looking into it it's not suitable for a tank of her size.

"Then you really should get a larger tank, we can't refund the full price of the fish because it's been exposed to your tank and may die when we QT it, so I can offer you 50% store credit"

That's when I lost it...

I told her with a few choice words "that if she bothered to train her staff we wouldn't be here, I told her that my tanks are cleaner than her shop, I told her my water is most probably of higher quality, and finally I TOLD HER THAT I AM getting a full refund, and store credit is useless because I wouldn't be shopping here again.

Needless to say I got my money back.
