Does anyone know if they are illegal in CA? I have been keeping an eye out for them in fish shops that I visit frequently in the LA area, or even in the SF area. I have yet to see any available for sale.

Exo's aren't cichlids, they're characins (related to tetra's and piranha's.....)
I'd figure their illegal as well, because when introduced in the wild, they're a hazard to native fish just like piranha's.
I'm just following my own logic here, though: not sure if they are indeed illegal.

i doubt they are illegal, as everyone knows p's are illegal mostly based on their reputation, not scientific fact. i live in extreme southern texas and p's could only live here during the summer, during the winter the water reaches temps that would be fatal to p's. the only place in the u.s. that p's could live is in southern fla., this observation is based on the fact the peacock bass are thriving in dade county fla. . the peacock had been introduced in several areas of fla and only the population in the miami area has been able to survive and reproduce. therefore my conclusion that water temps would also accomodate p's. back to the question many people have no idea what exodons are, they do not grow to excessive size (less than 6 inches), and they have not been "raped" in the media like p's have. also they are legal in fla and texas, sorry for being long winded but i hope this helps.

thePACK - Which ones? I dont think that when I lived up there I looked for them much though. Mostly while Ive been down here in LA I havent been able to find them.

Even though their conditions are pretty jacked fish wise, I have yet to be disappointed by anything I have bought there.

Cool.. 2 weeks should be good enough. OK ill be going there after work to buy some. Hope they have huge ones. I say give it a week before my Rbs can get to them. Their aggressions havent been the same since Ive reduced the shoal.
