The last trim took off the end of a sentence.  Most tropical fish in our 
tanks are non-invasive in areas where the local water parameters don't meet 
the requirements for tolerability.  Discus could never invade the Great Lakes 
becuase of the temperatures.  There are hot springs in the west that are warm 
enough for them to survive, but the water is too hard for them to spawn.
