Went to this place for the first time today, I bought a 75 gal tank on sale. I was very surprised at their selection of piranha and one of the owners assured me with in the next couple weeks they would have lots more piranha including elongs, rhoms you name it. They had three piraya 2.5", three terns 2" one 7" geri had sold a large elong the week before, also some snakeskins and reg rbps. The owner I talked to, Jim was very knowledgeable about piranha. Here's the address and info on the place. Defintley worth checking out, it's where I'll be making my next piranha purchase.

Just went there. Nice P's!! Good prices on stands and tanks. I think much cheaper than the store in Baltimore. I will be getting my stands and tanks there.

I went back today and got my lights for the 75 gal I bought last week. I say some nice looking elongs, cheaper than I've seen in other stores. I have seen the same size elong, 5", go for twice the amount they are charging! They do have some nice fish. I spoke to both of the owners today and they are getting a shipment in the end of next week of many piraha. Some they said suppliers have never seen! I will defintly be going next weekend to check them out!

The new P's are coming in this Friday. Talked with a guy there today. He said they will put them up on their website too.

They've taken 35% off their piranha prices. Don't know how long it will last though.

Just went in today and the 35% off is on for december! I have been to pretty much all the piranha carrying stores in maryland and not only does this place have the most diverse collection they have the best quality I have seen to date! With this 35% off these are fish below interenet prices. So guys and gals if your looking to get some new fish for the holidays now is the time.

went there today to check it out. very clean place, very nice P's, i saw a rhomb that was 15"+, 4 pirayas/ternetzi 15"+ and 2 breeding ternetzis 15"+

i've never seen any piranhas as massive as these in person. i used to have a 12" brandtii but these P's made it look tiny. they didn't have elongs but they had a lot of spilos, compressus, rhoms. it was kind of ironic cause they didn't have many RBPs since they are so common and their small rbps were overpriced, like $20 for 2". their other P prices were better though. i talked to the owner and he showed me a piranha that wasn't a pygo or serras, it was the newer classified type, it's teeth were jagged 3 ways and mean looking.
