Owner admits game wardens confiscated 13 fish
Owner admits game wardens confiscated 13 fish - The owner of the East Plano Aquarium (formerly known as the Fish Store) where 13 Piranhas were confiscated by officials from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, claims that it is all a case of mistaken identity.
Game wardens say they confiscated 13 Piranhas from the USA Aquarium Trading pet store, located in the 1700 block of Spring Creek Parkway in Plano, where it was discovered that the fish were being sold illegally as pets.
The pet store, located in the Plano Market Square Mall, allegedly was selling the Piranhas for $9 to $10 a piece, according to an anonymous source.

Too bad California does not enforce its Piranha and similar laws. I kept my store there "above board" for years, but my competitors (such as Hacienda Aquatics) got away with selling everything, including endangered fish (not that Piranha are, in fact they are not the danger to California waterways the politians claim, it is too cold in the winter even in So. Cal.)
