Start cry'in kidd..
To tell ya the truth, most states that illegalized Piranhas are located in the lower parts of the country. These states have warmer climate then most which P's can adapt to. Thus, being compatible on living in streams and lakes which can wipe out resident fishes.

Yeah.. sukkz, doesnt it.

Speaking of piranha being illegal, here in California where it is illegal, they had a piranha in a tank at the local pet store. The tank was labeled "Not for Sale" I just thought it was kind of funny!

Yeah.. I seen those before. Seen a 3" Rhom waaaaayyyyyy back in the corner at the LFS, and a picture of a breeding pair of RBs written as " Adult Pacus for Sale". They're either marked not for sale.. or asking a huge price for discouragment of sale.

Damn California hippies. Check out the store locator for an easy map of illegal states. Other than Georgia, I have marked states needing a permit as illegal.
