Does anyone know who sells piranhas in groups at whole sale prices? I am looking for something in the U.S. because I don't want to pay for importers license and the inspection fees and all of that.

No, I want something cheaper than that. Buying in Bulk. I have a small tropical fish store and people keep asking about piranhas. I was thinking more of like a company that could keep a steady flow of piranhas coming in.

I think your best bet for inexpensive piranhas, at least redbellies, would be to find a local hobbyist whos natts are breeding. Since most people don't have enough room in their house to keep a full spawn of natt babies, you could probably get them relatively inexspensively.

As for serrasalmus species, except maybe Serrasalmus rhombeus, you might as well give up looking for a wholesaler, since the majority of these species are wild caught.

If your in Canada try belowwater (Oliver), he only sells wholesale, if he is still doing it.

I tried going to belowwater but I live in the states. I would have to pay all kinds of legal fees to get an importers license and inspections. Plus, olivers prices really were not that much better than george or pedros.
