    They look very cool, but are not really my cup of tea. Most people are not responsible enough to care for these fish, and when they get too large, you read horror stories of them being freed in a pond and destroying the natural balance of the pond. But to each his own. If you weren't a fish lover, you wouldn't be here.

    Cool fish, but they get really big. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think it's against the law in the US to own them. they have been turned loose in quite a few lakes.

    Are those the fish that caused the big news story in the US a few years back? I think they may be banned in some US states if I read the article correctly... Not sure though about the current law.
