Hate to say it but yes I have seen this very issue so very well .
I live in Colorado a lot of inexperienced aquarium keepers are out there . I do a lot of fishing in our big lakes , you would be surprised how many times I hooked Paco's , Oscars , Red tail cats , Jack demsies ect
It is just such a horrible thought seeing all these fish turn up this way, and its not just fish , gators have turned up in our lakes but the people who let them go don't realize our climate is to harsh and you wind up finding there dead carcases on the lake shores ,
This is not just here its all over the country ,
All these poor fish are not used to any of the extreme climate changes we have here in the states , most come from south America and all the places that are warm
I know many fish and wild life officers and these stories come up way to often .
Thank you BYRON for bringing this topic up it so needed to be heard
