yes but aren't rays super sensitive to water conditions? I could get why Pirhana would be restricted. but something like the pike topminnow would be an easy snack for a bass. besides the water would be too cold for them. their from Central America

besides it feels very unfair that we get blamed for people who get a 50 gallon tank and think that they should throw some pirhana in their and then 1 year later they get bored/tired of it and they throw them in a local pond!

Again, its about the possibility of releasing pathogens and parasites not from local bodies of water, not just about invasive species...

Coz honestly other than PETA the gov't doesnt care if you cant keep your fish in correct sized tanks...

How would you create a closed circuit system? A nitrate filter and UV sterilizer?

Yeah not worth that's why I stick to common species that are ok for hobbyists to have Just because I would love a wolf pup doesn't mean I would really what the promblems affiliated with such an animal. I had a giant snake head years ago when they were legal and it was nothing but a pita. I t smashed through a 125 tank twice on me. I will stick with my larger barbs LOL
