Hoplias malabaricus , wolfish , caught in an agricultural pond in the east of the island , i ate this one .....
Awaous banana, caught in a mountain stream on the eastern part of the island

Erythrinus erythrinus , came from silty water others i caught at different locations have the red tipped fins
cories !!! corydoras aeneus , i need to get more !
DSC03157.jpgmy collection method , a small castnet imo stresses out fish the least and is easier to maneuver in those small pools of water

Those aeneus and that Acara look very good indeed!
I'm jealous. You can go to a near-by pond and find a better selection than most LFS here were I live
If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
