Hello friends. Below are pictures of my 225gl US Native aquarium. The 225 is my biggest tank and it keeps large adult fish. These are fish I caught. I'm happy with my current stock, it's a nice mix of fish, colors, and unique behaviors. The process of collecting is fascinating to me, catching a rare fish is just as much exciting as catching a trophy fish. I love fishing new systems and seeing different pigmentations. I'm always looking for a new adventure and hunting down those exceptional fish. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

I am jealous of that! Always wanted a big tank with native fish in it. You nailed it.

This particular Rio was caught October 2015 at 1" with a dip net in the Colorado River by Austin Airport. Its about 6" 2 years later. It started in my 175 but got too big for his tankmates (Shiners, Log Perch, baby Sunfish, Stonerollers, Chubs, Killifish) and would eat them.
