Following the general advice i got here, and ating on what I wanted to do for a while, I went to the pet shop today. I was planning on buying 2 more red belly's to go with the one I have in my 55 g tank. The shop, which specializes in fish only had babies, or six inch piranhas. I was looking for something around 4-5, but I wouldve taken the six anyway.... Until I found out they wanted 100 bucks each! I really want to add the 2 more fish, but theres no way a college student can afford that... anyone know any good spots to buy piranhas for cheap? Im in new jersey... any and all help is appreciated, thanks a lot

Whatever place that has em for 100 dollars, there must be some reason behind that. Ask them if they are wild reds i believe in a retail store they might be a little bit more expensive although even then 100 dollars is a little pricey.

Whew,thanks guys... i knew I'd have kicked myself in the ass for buying them... Now, sharkaquarium sells wild piranhas.... would wild piranhas live with my tank raised fish? without killing him? Haha, thanks ???

Definitely go to shark aquarium. From what I've seen they have all sizes & the most types of piranhas to choose from. Since you're already in jersey, take advantage. You won't be dissapointed.

Well, today was the big today... after shopping online, I decided to grab the girlfriend and take a road trip up to Shark Aquarium (probably about an hour and a half away). So I called first to ask about mixing wild 5 inch piranha with tank bred, and they said no problem. So I took the trip, and thanks to mapquest I ended up getting lost, and eventually ending up in brooklyn. (Don't ask, and I promise I'm not as stupid as I sound... lol) I finally made it to the store about 5 minutes before they closed only to find out that in fact they didn't have what I was looking for, and the website was incorrect. I was dissapointed... big time. Although, I was really impressed with the setup, and prices.... guess I'll have to go back soon!.
