I just called AquaTropical (LFS) and asked what p's they had. The lady said we have Black Tipped Piranhas. I said wats that , she was like oh they are black Piranhas dont worry. i asked her for the scintific name and she didnt know so I asked her to check with the manager caus I wanted to make sure its a rohm. When she got back to the phone she said they are called ...." Collossus Caproditus" !!!! WTF??? When I told her that no Piranha has a name like that and that a rohm is relly called a "serrasalmus rohmbeus", there was literally dead silence on the other side of the line. So i just told her that ill check them out for myself. She actually thanked me and hung up! Anyway thought i would share this anecdote.

I did a search on google to see if maybe she mixed it up with something else. Collossus Caproditus or Colossus Caproditus both came up with 0 results. She must've made it up on the spot. It had probably worked on other customers not educated by the great Fury

Yea i had the same experience when i drop by at a chinese LFS in mississauga(Canada) and the lady and the manager said it was a black piranha and then i looked closely and give em a smirk and told em it aint no piranha its a Pacu. I just laughed
still they don't believe 2 of them in the same tank around 8 inches in a 15 gal tank i think

haider,I had an expierence there to.I had no clue about what size a snakehead can grow to but really wanted one because of there reputation.I asked the chinese man there and he told me I can keep a snakehead in a 10 gallon for 2 years.Now I have found out I need a f*cking 180g tank,they screwed me over,but I am still happy with my snakehead and I am keeping it.
