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 say bite the bullet and learn from it .also check into it a lot more carefully next time and never trust a lfs fully sounds like you are not getting anything back for them find out what they are even post a pic on here everybody will be glad to help .
when i was looking for some reds to add i went back to the store i bought my others from and they had red pacus as red piranha i told him and he was not bothered .i will never go back again and now buy all my fish from ron who is a few thousand miles away over the pond the things we do for p's
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.
