I was just talking with a buddy of mine who will remain nameless.. and we both decided a piranah pit would be a good idea if you didnt live around alot of kids. After checking out the Piranah Fury website I dont see why more people dont have these fun loving creatures as pets. They can get over a foot long and will eat anything you feed them. As for the pit it could be like a koi pond.... except .. filled with deadly fish that will strip your bones of meat in about 3 minutes.
I was trying to think who on the GA board might have Piranahs and came up with TheReject and DeltaAir... Ross I thought of you too budy, you seem like you would have Piranahs for some reason.

Geez no input on Piranahs? Like you guys never thought about having a piranah pit!

We've already got one... It's called general discussion

Sure, I will tell you all about them. Come on over and bring your swim trunks, we could talk about it in my hot tub. Funny it does kinda look like a koi pond.

Piranhas are illegal in GA.

If they or their eggs escape it would cause damage to environment.

Think fire ant
Coyotes
Cud zoo
Carp
And the list goes on, some real nasty critters.
Don’t do it…

Ive heard to the contrary, about the law that is. Im assuming you are a DNR employee. We have a lake behined my house thats always got people around it. I guess if it had a school of meat eaters that could cause some problems.

Alot of the intown crowd here likes to take their dogs down and toss tennis balls into the water and the dogs go and splash around. I could just see that getting ugly really quick.

I am retired DNR LE.

Here is link http://www.legis.state.ga.us/cgi-bin/gl_codes_detail.pl?code=27-5-1

specified 27-5-5 -4

Just don't do it. you can do a lot of damage with these fish.

Example, Flathead Catfish were released into GA waters by well meaning people and the catfish are doing a lot of damage to the envireoment

I and others, would like to send a bill to the person who released Fire Ants.

I see what your saying. I have some horrer stories about fire ants from childhood.
Link Posted: 2/27/2006 12:49:18 PM EDT
Ps (& most other tropical fish) won't survive GA's winters. so unless u have a pond warmer/heater, it ain't gonna work. south FL is a different story.

I have saw and Gators are in Barrow Jackson Hall Banks Franklin Countys.

I was attending a Bar B Q at the Swamp Shack behind Akins Ford three years ago. and oboserved a baby gator on a beaver pond dam. Dranage to Fort Yargo Lake

Had some kids catch one while fishing in south Hall County. This one was four foot long, They kept it in the bath tub.

Charged several people with killing two Gators in Franklin County 1976

They are here.

Don't think that fish and wildlife will not adapt they will.

Had a man catch a Parahana from beaver Swamp near Commerce and another was caught in South Hall a few years back. Looked like a large Bream with several rows of good teeth.

I have a stuffed pirahna on top of my fridge. The fire ants were introduced into Texas decades ago in a shipment from elsewhere-they are territorial and migrated like the armadillo and coyote. Aramdillos are now in S metro.

They are allergic to .45LC ... or so ive heard. But at least I didnt make hats out em " Dilla' hats "

So, I guess the idea of putting piranahs in Piedmont Park's pond is out of the question. Sure would control the floaters though.
Link Posted: 2/28/2006 5:09:52 PM EDT
Nope no pirannahs. All the fucking critters are my ex's. I miss those dogs, but I don't miss any other critter in that house, four and two legged!
