Big time throwback for this picture today, going back to fishing on my college campus with my roommate at the time @jakeofutah . We had a ton of invasive fish in our ponds, but it was honestly pretty fun to go catch them. I also caught the biggest Largemouth Bass I've even caught in those ponds, one I caught on a tiny little grub while fishing for cichlids, one I'm guesstimating weighed ~7 lbs. This is a male Peacock Bass (actually not a bass, but rather a member of the cichlid family), and was one of the first ones I saw on campus, although they were very common by the next year. This one was guarding the nest and the school of fry, and it took over five minutes of repeatedly dragging my lure around the fish. I finally caught him and was super excited, and then while I was taking pictures and getting the hook out, Jake managed to hook the female. The best part though, was Jake dropped and she slid back I to the water before we had gotten any pictures of her, and he kinda fell/tumbled into the water and miraculously somehow grabbed her out of the lake and back onshore. ..... These Peacock Bass are not native and come from South America, butare not considered invasive. They were actually introduced in 1984 as a new predator to control already invasive cichlids like tilapia, and are theoretically kept from spreading by their intolerance of higher salinity and/or colder temperatures. Since their introduction, they've also provided a relatively major sporting and economic resource in South Florida for fishermen. Now they are incredibly beautiful fish that I feel lucky to have been able to catch and see up close, but I'm honestly skeptical on their intentional introduction. I feel like they definitely compete with our native fish by eating the same prey, taking the best territories, and possibly even eating their young. Also, I think if they were accidentally introduced like the other cichlids, I think we absolutely would be calling them an invasive species. However, I've seen 0 papers researching any positive or negative effects these fish are having in South Florida, so if you know of any, please send it my way!

This past weekend I took the spider wood out and boiled it for a little over 2 hours. After doing that I did a 40% water change, and placed the now water logged drift wood back into the tank. I also added a second brand new hang on filter meant for a 50 gallon tank. The water quality is better but still not ideal I’m in need of suggestions to improve the clarity. Please comment or message me with any help!!

Huginn is much more wary of the camera than his tankmates. #Aquarium #Fish #FishKeeping #Cichlid #CommunityTank #BolivianRam #PetParent
