It depends.... If they were silver dollars keep them if you want. But if they were pacus, you should get rid of them asap. They grow VERY large.

Sorry to hear that...i would never buy a thing at that LFS again!

You should tell another clients to be aware!

As been said, you can keep silver dollars but if they are Tambaquis (Pacus) don´t even think about it, you may regret!

Well, if it were me, the shop owner would have no choice but to take them back. I bought the fish, but he sold them....who will get in more trouble should this be made public? He would take them back.

I say do a petition or have a protest in front of their store by blocking the way in. And/or threaten them not to buy from the store or else they'll have to put up a fight


What kind do you think these guys are, besides RBs? Even if the advertisment say "all sales final", its still considered false advertisment, especially if they were trying to sell it as something else.

i can kind of relate to this becuz my LFS has red bellied p's for sale. one of the employees told me that they would never sell p's there, but the own himself told me they were p's. Im not saying they arent but this guy is kinda shady.

Take them back...as a salesperson they have an obligation to give you exactly what you paid for and if you're not satisfied with having anything but piranha that you were told they were they should take them back. If they don't then they have very poor business ethics and people will begin to see how they are and no longer purchase there. In the long run this type of practice will hurt them and eventually cause their business to fail.

But what the hell!! it'll get the job done.
