I'd love to keep one mate maybe if i get another tank set up in the future maybe i'd keep one or two, i don't think they'd do too well in my tank now they prefer cold water.

Glad you enjoyed the pic's !

Nice catches. They almost look like mini pbass with their coloring (not really the right body shape though). Looks like a cool fishing spot also.
