I was visiting my grandmother in a physical therapy rehab, and noticed there was a nice little canal behind the place. Lots of rock, looked to have abit of depth.

I decided to try it out just to see what kind of variety was in there. Nothing huge but I was impressed with the Amount of different species sharing a small space.

I also caught a small large mouth bass, and saw many jewel cichlids. I was really hopeing to catch a Midevil, or the like. But not this time.
Nice canal tho I’m sure it had much more to offer as I only stayed for 2 hours and was only using bread. Lots of apple snails around, I could have broken one of them open and used that for bait instead and might have caught more carnivorous fish. Maybe next time.

Doesn't look right for t. Mariae, I've caught a million...
You never know In those canals, very well could be a hybrid. I caught a ton of them, those, and he Mayans where buy far the most numerous.

Another picture of the same type of fish, slightly smaller and decided he wanted to fly off my hook before I could grab him.
