I'm not sure of anything, but I highly doubt that the Aquarium Center would
pull that kind of a sales tactic. It's not the kind of store that sells
item like that without a warning. They do a pretty good job of using their
tank labels to let you know about bog plants that won't survive completely
submersed and/or catfish that grow up 7 feet long.
The only time I ever bought them was years ago, and the flounders I bought
died fairly quickly (at that point, though, the average life expectancy of a
cardinal tetra in my tank was about two weeks). I haven't tried since then.
Is anyone else familiar with the specimens at the Aquarium Center?
