In the aquarium. As others have said they are not all that pretty and can be aggressive.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

My LFS keeps them and gives them away for free. They are very small specimens and the people that take them are usually stocking a pond in order to avoid mosquitos or to be used as feeder fish to larger cichlids. We had a West Nile issue here a few years back so no one wants mosquitos lurking around their yards.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
