Yeah, but you are wise enough not to dump it in the local creek, woods or
Everglade if you ever got tired of it. :)
There are evidentally are a few fishermen (not this one!) already wondering
if they would be good bait in turbid waters. The USGS exotic fishes page
shows zebra danios as far north as one spot in Connecticut. They don't say
if that is a powerplant outlet.
Please correct me if in error, but aren't zebra danios found fairly far
upstream the Brahmaputra River and more tolerant of cooler temperatures than
a lot of aquarium fishes? If one goes far enough, it is a snowmelt river.
Always sorry to see an exotic introduced. Wonder who is getting crowded out.
All the best,
