Catching Wild African and American Cichlids in Australia

These fish were caught using bread and a yabby net in a pond in Victoria, Australia. Apparently been here for 30 years+

They survive because a power plant keeps the water warm all year round.

Main fish found were

Tilapia, Red Devil, African Zebra, Convict

There is HEAPS of hybridization here. I think its cos of such high numbers and because the water is not clear.

Author JAMSAQUARIUMS1239 (13 days)
those are for pets for fish hobbyists and for breeding.

Author JAMSAQUARIUMS1239 (13 days)
oh cool are you going to keep those as aquarium fish?

good way of fucking up our lakes and systems...

Spacken ey!

Author Jesse Zissou (3 months)
The above comment.. if you say they are meant to be kept as pets, why the
fuck would you be saying to let them go? Obviously by the australian
accents it is not canada. $100 a fish they reckon? Theyre worth fuck all.
ZERO. Stupid

Author Daryl Hutchins (1 year)
Dumping is one theory. Another is that some very pig-headed, militant
"authorities" did it (knowing it was "safe" to do so) to support their
anti-aquarium fish philosophy.

Thank you!!!!! Sorry I didn't see this comment when I asked!

Author Pedro4490 (9 months)
they are not worth much, they would be worth as wild caught if they were
from the African lakes or the Amazon. They said there were hybrids there,
so pretty much worthless. Anyway, I'm not against feral populations in
different parts of the world, in the long run, new species will appear in
places they didnt had a chance to go. If they do not affect native species,
that is great.

There is nothing wrong with catching these fish. they do not belong in
those waters and may not survive if that power plant is shut down. Bet you
don't complain when your eating fried fish with tartar sauce so stfu.
