I was talking to someone at the LFS and said they get trade-in fish every once in a while. I guess those Pacus, arowanas and oscars get too big for peoples tanks.

I wondered what do LFS give for trade ins? Is it like college bookstores where you buy a book for $85.00 and at the end of the semester when you sell it back they give you $20 bucks for it? Then they turn around and sell it for $65.00 (used) LOL, its true at my college, HA.

But seriously, has anybody done this before or know about it.

i just traded 2 8'' reds got £12 each and some food for my p's .i actually bought 2 reds @ 3'' a few months ago and was charged £15 each so basically you get not much .
the obvious thing is they have to house them feed them and could have them a while and still make a profit ,fish such as p's can take up a full tank even for one fish
you can see their point

Damn, you'll get triple more selling it off on the buy and sell forum to a member (just like me.. hint hint
). But I would never trade my fish to any LFS.. the ones over here in my area are shiesty ass mofos. Ill be lucky enough it get feeders back as a trade off.

I saw this HUGE pacu (12-14") at lfs and it was for sale for $16. I wonder if someone traded it in or just gave it to them, lol.

I bought my 12"+ silver arowana for $125.00 and they told me it was a trade in. They must have gave the guy 25 bucks and the rest was profit, lol.

Its ashame, but oh well.

fish are worth what your willing to pay for them. and lfs's arent willing to pay sh*t!. i too would rather give away my rhom or reds away to a member close to me on p-fury then to a lfs. im not to impressed how they treat there fish at some pet/fish stores here.

Yes I have, but I only deal with one place and have known the owner for ten years.
He give me top dollar for my fish, I would never trade in my fish to anyother fish store.
But I did trade my 22" redline snakehead for a 14" yell pacus. so I thought it was a good trade..
