Unbelievable that a beautiful fish as this one can be so destructive...

it's always the same that happens when humans introduce species somewhere they don't belong... So sad. Humans mess everything up, and then the poor animals need to be hunted in order to save the native species...

humans a plague on this planet. So typical buy something you think is cute or your kid wants then you don't want to be responsible and throw it out somewhere so it invades another species territory- just like pythons and gators. this is sad
