    If they are illegal, they are illegal. Why risk getting in trouble over something like that? But personally, I think California has way too strict of laws of what you can keep as pets. Some things make sense why you can't keep them but other do not.

    You could own it illegally but that is strongly not advised.

    We have had people come on here in the past who own illegal fish and they find themselves without help and banned if not reported.

    There are so many other wonderful fish out there. Maybe we can help you pick something else that would suit you?
    8 tanks running now:
    1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
    Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.

    Keep it on your list of 'wants' and if you someday ever move than you can get one!!! There are alot of really interesting fish you may find to tide you over until then!

    Im not saying that I would smuggle an illegal fish into Cali. I understand that they are illegal because of their possible effect on the ecosystem. I was just wondering if there were any loop holes that I didnt know about (certian species of rays or if their debarbed, ect)

    If you're a biologist doing research on them, you should be able to get a permit.

    Im not sure if this applys to california, but in maine if there is a restricted species you can apply for a permit to own it. All states are different so california is probably not the same way.
