Exactly. I have a dwarf species that is trying hard to get over a half foot
in length. It is unlikely this specie would survive any where but places
cichlids can live. But in the states that have this ban, this specie is
included since it covers the entire group- channa and parachanna. When
pirhahna were banned in several states, why didn't they ban tetras too?
