Probably, but its not the fish, its the name. And then what those people do
with them. We should just keep going and ban all labyrinth fish, and
cichlids and sunfish since they are similar to gouramies. Wouldn't want no
one confusing them. Should ban bowfin , mudminnows, burbot and rivulus too
, they could all be mistaken for snakeheads. You never know, nobody knows
what they are doing but the law makers.
Back to seriousness, I think Parachanna africanus is a nice small snakehead
too, maybe reaching almost a foot.
