    That fish looks awesome and I wouldn't mind having one but I doubt it will ever be legal in South Africa.

    I think they're awesome fish, and not all of them of super-invasive megapredators. Sure, they have caused some major environmental damage in some places; I think they're pretty flippen cool. :D

    They're only invasive because of human error, never forget that. They have their purpose in nature, but in the areas where they originate from :)
