Probably not. I think with all the yrs they were available in the aquarium trade it would have happened already.People are always releasing fish that get 2 big. I doubt they would survive the winters up here but you never know. There was a big pacu caught out of a local pond about 10 or more yrs ago that had been released by a customer of mine @ the time. He thought it was funny. The people who caught it and the bait shop they brought it to thought it was a piranha . Not too funny after all. It was in the paper. Dont buy fish you cant accommodate. They do grow bigger than their tanks.
Ramble, ramble, blah, blah.
See you on the river tonight.
