Guessing these will start to show up elsewhere around the Mediterranean basin before long. Confused

Not good. I've seen those things do quite a number to the heroine cichlids in a good portion of Central America. I'm sure they'll be just as problematic elsewhere.

I've a friend who travels to Israel regularly and she says the place mentioned in this study is a dumping ground for unwanted aquarium fish. Other species found there inlcude alligator gar, piranha,snakeheads and lots of smaller species.

The plecos are apparently spreading through Jordanian waters as well. Yell

If you must insist on living in a box ...... at least do your thinking outside.
