That is one bad-looking fish. If I were you I'd put it back in the lake.

Nice pleco, though. :)

We can't release the fish once it has been kept under captive conditions. Too many risks are present which can seriously endanger the lives of the feral population.

Joel, where are you located? I heard Florida has several aquarium fish already invading the lakes and other water systems.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Its very cut and dry and not good for this hobby. never put an aquarium fish in any local body of water.

Just a comment or more of a question I guess about releasing the fish. Wouln't it be ok to release the fish in a private pond because it sounds like all the fish that are in there are from the hobby and it also sounds like it might be a private, "contained" pond? If it is I would think it would be fine to release the fish into the pond.

I will agree however that a fish kept in an aquarium should NEVER be released into a natural non-contained waterway or even one that might flood and allow the fish to escape into an adjacent river, stream, pond or any other body of water.
